Water drips out of the faucet in the corner. I open the a cabinet, but there are only more cobwebs. Anxious to get out of this place, I start to walk back to the door and exit, but stop dead in my track. My heartbeat increases as I intently listen to a hard pounding noise, that appear to be getting louder by the second. Bang, Bang, Bang.
We naturally have that “personal bubble” that we try to keep in tact as well as keep from popping other’s bubbles. No matter how confident you play it off in the halls, no matter how good looking you think you are, that personal space conceals our privacy. But when my bladder feels like it is about to burst causing me to release the contents of my bladder everywhere, then I would rather pop that strangers bubble and cause an awkward sensation to occur. A few weeks after my encounter with the brute at the urinal, I walked back into the restroom where the same stench of privacy and feces inhabited the room. As I approached the trio once again, there was yet another student that took over the middle urinal.
A boy named Holling Hoodhood was holding a garbage can under the ceiling with a bunch of crap falling out, and was just being normal. Sycorax and Caliban came dashing out of the ceiling and tried to run away. They ran outside and Mia Thi caught them from escaping. Mrs. Bigio was so relieved, and started to treat Mia Thi better person
When the argument shifts its setting by moving from the bedroom to the kitchen, Carver’s use of symbolism adds intensity to the story. Too busy with their selfishness, “In the scuffle they knocked down a flowerpot that hung behind the stove” (329). Neither parent stopped to see the broken pot, nor did any of them break focus on their fight with the child. The kitchen is usually a place where a family comes together, but here they were breaking apart at the seams.
a deep voice bellows from the kitchen. The door opens to reveal a chubby middle-aged man wearing an apron. His stubbly face contorted in confusion as he inspects the mess, bewildered. “Eighteen months you’ve worked here and I ain’t seen you drop so much as a spoon” he says, perplexed. He hobbles over to the waitress, concerned.
I should probably treat you like a human if you can talk.” I said I went into the kitchen and grabbed some ham for Charles. As I opened the refrigerator, I heard a knock on my door. I walked to the door and opened it, but no one was present. I looked at the welcome carpet and noticed an old newspaper and a note.
I volunteered at Alternatives on December 1 from 10am-12:30pm in Robbie’s Room. There I assisted Logan, the director of Robbie’s Room, by cleaning the craft closet. We removed art boxes that were not used often and placed them in the shed. We also cleaned out what Alternatives calls “Birthday Kits.” These kits are donated and contain a birthday cake mix, icing, a toy, a coloring book, crayons, a toy and often bubbles.
Fitzgerald says, “An hour later the front door opened nervously and Gatsby in a white flannel suit, silver shirt, and gold colored tie hurried in” (Fitzgerald 89). The word “nervously” implies Gatsby was nervous when opening the door. Also, it says he hurried in, meaning he is worried about something. Another example is, “Gatsby looked with vacant eyes through a copy of Clay’s ‘Economics,’ starting at the Finnish tread that shook the kitchen floor and peering toward the bleared windows from time to time as if a series of invisible but alarming happenings were taking place outside. Finally he got up and informed me in an uncertain voice that he was going home” (Fitzgerald 89-90).
I loved the counter where Grandpa kept the penny candy in large glass jars. If I was good and helped him pick up stuff that dropped on the floor, he would give me one piece of candy. That 's how I learned to work for Grandpa, but Dad kept telling me that I couldn 't work for candy all
“You can hardly tell it 's a basement. It 's covered in carpet- ing nicer than we have in our living room. A monster TV glows in a corner, and there 's a pool table and exercise equip- ment. It doesn 't even smell like a basement”(23). This reminds me of the time when I just saw my
