There are many major differences and similarities between the film, The Mighty, and the book, Freak the Mighty. One major difference is when Max and Freak are rescuing Loretta Lee’s purse from the sewer, and Tony D. and his friends show up in the film, but in the book, they don’t. One major similarity is when Freak rides on Max’s shoulders everywhere they go. First off, the difference occurs in the book, as it states, “No way, I saw one of Tony D.’s punks stuff it down there yesterday morning” (Philbrick 61). This evidence shows that Tony D. and his friends showed up before Max and Freak got to the sewer.
“Incredibly, it was another four weeks before they saw each other again. As fate would have it, her visits to the supermarket never coincided with his schedule to bag. Each time she went to the store, her eyes scanned the checkouts at once, her heart in her mouth. And each hour he worked, the bag boy kept one eye on the door, watching for the red-haired girl with the big orange bow.”(Rylant) This girl could have saved herself a lot of heartbreak if she just remembered to look and see what time it
We would also watch the storms come in on our porch because my mom has always loved storms and it is something that I enjoy with her. A bitter-sweet story of my childhood was in half day kindergarten we had a meeting with our parents and the teacher at the end of the year and the first two kids to get to her classroom got a fish. I was the first and I got fish and its name was Snowflake. I died about two weeks later so me and my mom went to Walmart and bought a new one. It was orange so I named it Peaches and it died in less than two weeks.
A few days ago, my mom and I went to McDonalds. While we were walking with my mom and I saw an old man sitting next to the door. He looks really hungry and I felt bad for him, but there was not much I could do about. Inside my mom got us some ice coffee and a few other things. After we were done, my mom goes to and gets something else.
I live in Coral Springs so the AA meeting that was closest to my house was at First United Methodist Church, I HATE churches and I was completely turned off by the idea of walking into one. The meeting was at 7 o’clock, I got there at 6:41pm and walked through the holy doors of Jesus Christ. There was only one man named Phil inside, he was juggling a coffee pot and Publix chocolate chip cookies. I asked him if this is where the meeting was and he said yeah but you’re early. In his mind, he was sniffing out the nonalcoholic vibe I was giving, if it was really my first time coming to AA and if I was really an alcoholic then I would not come to the meeting 20 minutes early.

Richard Nixon was walking straight outta Compton on October 31, 1969 going around dressed up as JFK. He was walking around with all his silver dollar pancakes trying to get rides from people to get back to Washington, D.C. to deliver a speech. The only problem was that his silver dollar pancake mix was not currency until it was a solid. So somehow, some way he had to make it go from liquid to gas. Or make his candy burn to make his Walmart silver dollar pancake mix legal currency, or burn this trash that he found trying to sell, so he tried to get it to change colors.
