The first time he meets the Finch children, enchants them with the story of when he saw Dracula.

Dill’s creativity keeps the children entertained even when they run out of
Multiple people who weren’t paying attention had almost gotten run over by cars. Kids who were out late trespassing while playing Pokemon GO had been shot at and almost killed. Most people would argue that those people were just being stupid, but maybe it was something more than
on page 42 “He was not happy. He said the words to himself. He recognized this as the true state of affairs. He wore his happiness like a mask and the girl had run off across the lawn with the mask and there was no way of going to knock on her door and ask for it back.” To Begin with, Montag was pleased to follow the norms of society; “Montag grinned a fierce grin of all men singed and driven back by flame….

I said, “Gracie watch this!” I tried to do a flip but I fell off. I flew like a bird. I was so embarrassed that I covered it up with a laugh like a possum covering it being attacked with pretending to be dead. I laughed along with my family for a really long time.
After his divorce, he had a lot of suicidal thoughts and said things such as “I am better off dead” and “I won’t be around much longer to bother you”. He had trouble falling asleep and would stay awake in bed for hours. When he did not sleep for days, he would drink, dance around the house, and talk to himself continuously. He has done a lot of risky behaviors, like driving 100 mph when the speed limit is 35 mph, mixing alcohol with painkillers, and spend loads of money on something useless. He was embarrassed by what he did, but couldn’t control himself doing it.
Her eye was unwillingly drawn towards the crowded bookshelf and upon a delicately framed yellowing image. She was quick to dismiss a tear that threatened to spill as she reminisced the joy of summers past. Her parents watching as two identical girls throwing piles of autumn leaves up into the air with total abandon. It had been taken after her graduation ceremony before a similar storm had ripped through the city and their car had fatefully overturned by the hurricane. With her slow deep breaths in tune with the silence of the aftermath, the cobbled clouds had turned a deep ashen colour with light rain gently drizzling with calming ‘pitter-patter’ sounds echoing between the buildings.
Guy was so doubled up, he propped himself on his mother’s casket to keep from falling over. His grandson, Jim Berry, and our son Jon laughed so hard they were crying. Guy pulled up his dad’s pants and they walked out of the tent to the puzzled mourners. “I didn’t know what in the world was going on when I heard you all laughing,” Carolyn
Wafting through the light breeze was the sweet aroma of funnel cakes, cotton candy, and hot dogs. Glancing around, I knew one thing, I was determined to go on the three most daunting rides, the Giant Dipper, a hair-raising roller coaster, the Beach Blaster, sickening my stomach at the thought of it, and lastly the dark, looming room of extreme laser tag. While laser tag at the time didn’t seem to be a very
Storm grabbed my arm and dragged me into the wall. I screamed thinking that I was gonna crash into it but then realized that I was standing on a lollypop. I looked each and every way and everywhere I looked I saw a new magical sight. “ Go explore” said
I slept in the garage the night he died and broke all the goddam windows with my fist, just for the hell of it” (Salinger 39). Ever since the passing of his brother, Holden has never been the same person as he had been. He never quits thinking of Allie and he believes he is with him at all times. When Holden is depressed, which happens frequently, he decides to speak to Allie to comfort him, as shown by, “What I did, I started talking, sort of out loud, to Allie. I do that sometimes when I get very depressed.
Andy thanks all of us for our time, we wiggle back into our clothes and decided to explore a bit before heading home. We say our goodbyes, then wander the city and giggle at the openmouthed stares and shocked round eyes inside the faces of the people who don’t know what to make of us. We end our day with two slices each of hot, gooey, Brooklyn style eggplant pizza washed down with some frosty vanilla cokes. It was delicious, and it sets me up perfectly to fall asleep the instant the wheels of the car start rolling their way towards home, belly full and thoughts of names for baby girls on the brain as the rhythmic jostling of the car and the exhaustion of early pregnancy carry me off into a comfortable sleep that lasts until we make it
