When I first began to read the short story “Leng Lui is for Pretty Lady” by Elaine Chiew, it appeared like a simple story about a maid’s routine or simple life is explained. As I read further, I felt that the author is not just recognizing the life of a maid but it is portraying the importance of a maid in the family. As a reader, the part that stood out to me the most was where Mr. Kong tries to seduce Alina, I was stunned because I realized that there are people who think that maids would do anything he wants them to do. From the beginning itself I see that Alina was kind of irritated by the Kong family. One part where I see the irritation is “we cook and clean all day, and then we have to hear the harping from our taitais”.
Again, I was confused with the fact of what was going on in her head that just made her say that exact sentence over and over again, every time the pink rabbit popped up on the screen, and why she thought it was necessary to repeat what she said over again. Consequently, the article 'Alzheimer's Disease" states, that one symptom for behaver change in dementia/Alzheimer's victims is the reacting to something by repeating words and/or actions. Now, my understanding is Helen Isn't repeating herself just to be annoying or just to do it. In fact, she might not even know that she's repeating herself. Because she might not even know that she has Alzheimer's because there is currently no diagnosis for
I’m going to miss her though. I’ve taken care of her since she was seven weeks old. Already a bit depressed after our parting I noted that this was for her own good and that I couldn’t have hoped for a better home for her. I walked to the car thinking this over and found myself already holding the door handle. Puff, being the tiny and fluffy kitten that she is, I double checked before I sat down that Puff wouldn’t accidentally die by me sitting on her.
In this research essay, it will be about how the research on dementia has helped me understand the short story "Babysitting Helen". Have you ever with Alzheimer's, and wonder what It is?

Have you ever had your grandma give you an ugly, itchy sweater that you knew you were never going to wear? Would it change your mind if you knew it meant something to her? The sweater could symbolize a special connection with grandma. Authors often use symbolism to show the readers characters stories. In Of Mice Of Men, I believe John Steinbeck’s greater message is that everyone has something that shows who they are and their story behind it.
I was always under the impression that witches were much like practitioners of voodoo, but this is simply not the case. While voodoo is purely demonic and dark, witchcraft seems to harness demonic power in a much lighter feeling way by claiming to provide healing, not harm. This book definitely showed me what witchcraft truly is to those who practice it, rather than the dramatic misconceptions from Hollywood and other media. From a spiritual aspect, this book was a challenge to read. I went into it knowing that I had to be careful and make sure that I kept reasserting the truth in my mind, and I did.
Mostly because that place seems to be a walking norm violation. My goal was to walk up to someone's basket, remove items, and walk away. I had my baby with me again, in her stroller. My goal of bringing her was to appear a bit less mentally incapacitated. So I get to Wal-Mart, and go in.
Roald Dahl’s ‘The Landlady’, a mystery-horror short story, is purposely written to entice the readers to think about how people are not always as they seem. Dahl uses the art of foreshadowing to focus on the mysterious Landlady. The Landlady is described as about forty-five or fifty years of age with a round pink face, gentle blue eyes and pale lips. She also has small, white, quick moving hands with red fingernails. At first, the Landlady seems pleasant and accommodating, however, as the story progresses the reader discovers there is more to the Landlady; her true personality and purpose.
Proctor, seeing Mary War-ren, draws her by the arm to Hale. Proctor: ‘Here now! Mary, how did this poppet come into my house?’ Mary Warren, frightened for herself, her voice very small: ‘What poppets that, sir?’” (Miller 75). Cheever insists that the poppet signifies “Hell”, per se, and Mary Warren is to deny the accusations as she knows what the poppet signifies as well. In The Crucible, the doll -and Rebecca Nurse as well- symbolizes the transformation of good to evil: dolls, in a normal society, represent childhood innocence and bring happiness.
As they exit Ruby’s parking lot Estelle Louise says, “Clemmy Sue that there gotta be the bestest birthday gift in all my years. I gots to know though, who you be thinkin’ that there Harry might be?” “Why he be the guy, that be givin’ you, that there money, for them there home improvements.” The peal of Estelle Louise’s laughter made Clemmy Sue smile. Usually they talk nonstop, but tonight they ride in silence and contemplate what Miss Ta Rot had told Estelle Louise. Clemmy Sue, slide into the entrance of Estelle Louise’s muddy driveway and skids to a stop, thirty feet away from the mailbox. “I be so sorry honey, but this here be about as close to that there mailbox as imma gonna gets in this here sassy storm.”
The mechanic shop appeared rather suddenly, though Ginny paid no notice until she had need of it, an attitude she extended to most things. It was four stalls away from the Lieblingessen. She probably wouldn’t have even known it was there at all if one of the patisserie’s neighbors hadn’t come over to complain. “I can’t believe the landlords allowed it,” the neighbor sniffed. He was a large, greasy seller of formerly-upscale retail.
