What started as a thrilling new adventure for American trapper and hunter Sanger Rainsford quickly became a nightmare. On Friday April 15th, 2016, Rainsford traveled to Ship-Trap Island, a small spit of land off the coast of the Caribbean, along with family friend Whitney Johnson with the intention of mounting a hunting expedition in the Amazon. After going up onto the afterdeck and hearing a gunshot, he ran to the railing to see what was all the commotion. He had climbed onto the railing to get a better view and quickly lost his balance, subsequently being thrown into the bitterly cold waters. “After swimming for what seemed like forever, I heard an ear piercing sound off in the distance.
My Meatloaf A few weeks ago, I was going through old family pictures when I discovered a very amusing picture. A small squirming puppy lay with his head in the corner of his crate half asleep, but smiling at his new family. Of course, the first thought that popped into my head was “ my little meatloaf.” This puppy is not just a dog of a meatloaf, he is Bentley, one of my best friends. Ever since I picked him out, Bentley has been very special to me. In November of 2010, my family drove two hours in the Pennsylvania woods towards a Labrador breeder’s house where we would discover a chubby brunette puppy crawling overtop of all his siblings.
He put ketchup on the dock and in the water and then put some of his clothes in the water. When his friends arrived he quickly hid in the reeds, then let out the loudest scream. His friends were now in shock and they were really worried than Chet jumped out of the reeds and said “I got you good”. Chet’s friends are furious for pulling such a terrifying prank on them and he regrets pulling a prank on them and Chet is upset and worried because his friends are the only friends he has had in a long time and he thinks he blew his
It is a hot, sunny afternoon and the air conditioning in the house broke. We try to keep cool, wearing as little as possible, but it just isn’t enough. We decide it is time to go swim in the lake behind our house. It’s our own private lake, but we hire a neighbor boy to keep it clean -He also cleans the pool. We change into our swimsuits, you choose your blue and black one-piece, and I choose my LEGO Star Wars swim trunks from eighth grade (they were loose when I got them).
When he threw the towel down Billy fell into the ground and is resting on a layer of soil beneath the town of Fruitvale. Billy got really scared of being in the ground so long that he tried everything that he could do to get out of the ground but then he finally rose to the surface and became a mud puddle. When he formed in to a mud puddle he met a girl named Sally and they became best friends. They tell each other everything and do everything together until one day when
The only reason he does that is because that's the only way he has a chance of getting released from the ward. At a group session Cheswick brings up the cigarettes again and McMurphy doesn't back him up. Cheswick ends up pulled away by the aides and taken to the disturbed ward. “But just as soon as we got to the pool he said he did wish something mighta been done, though, and dove into the water” Pg, 151. That's when Cheswick jams his fingers into the grate at the bottom of the pool and drowns himself.
There he was a 17 year old boy going to jump into freezing water. That he could possible die in and stay there for ever after he jumped a lifeboat picked him up and saved him when he got on the bout they were packed like sardines as the stern was up in the air nobody moved for fear to fall over. That big quote helped me feel like I was jumping of the bout and pulled up into a lifeboat where I am jammed in pack together as tight a sardinians. Not knowing where his parents were they could be dead or freezing in the water. As you can see these quotes in the story made you feel like you were there and going through this tragedy.
That morning there were noisy small birds chirping and very bright colored flowers blossoming. We got up from our beds and got dressed to got to my aunt's house because yearly she has an Easter party and invites the whole family. We all get together and play inside of this huge inflatable bounce house/ water slide. We had fun there just throwing ourselves from the top of the bounce house. Then I got tired and went to walk the dog for my uncle.
Gertrude is the little girl who never really saw it coming, when her father yelled for the family to follow him her aunt that was holding her turned back as it said in the text “Well, i kicked and scratched and bit her, and gave her a terrible time, because I wanted to be with my father.” (Page 104). Her aunt made a terrible decision and almost got her killed for it, With major luck, however she swam over to a mattress and was saved by a man on a roof as it is stated in the text “Then he pushed loose and jumped into the current. His head bobbed up, then went under again. Several more times he came up and went under. Gertrude kept screaming for him to swim to her.
Once on a hot summer day, I was playing in my pool with my figures. The water was a little murky and hard to see through. I was in the deep end though when I dropped my Grievous figure where it sunk into the blueish green abyss and disappeared. I panicked knowing I couldn’t swim to the bottom and snatch it up so I instead sobbed for 20 straight minutes until my dad got home and fished it out with a pool net. It was a dark moment in my childhood, a scar I will never forget.
