This made her on edge until we arrived home, and she had a cup of Irish coffee as she smoked a cigarette. Once she drank, she relaxed enough to make breakfast. As she cooked, I kept thinking about my dreams. I went to war thinking when one platoon relieved another platoon; the soldiers gave each other grief. ‘Hey rookie, we made it a cakewalk.’ Or asked things like ‘Hey, where you from – Detroit?’ When I saw men with one leg or blood seeping through their chest bandages, it took all the romantic notions that John Wayne’s movies put in your head.
I lift the plant vertical while Atticus sniffs further. I move to the sidewalk. The street’s quiet this morning with few cars and one young woman walking her grey Pit Bull. No cat in sight. We go back inside and I phone the last two Starbucks.
Soon her cookies were all baked. (Parish 16) The author shows the female gender role by making Amelia bake cookies because the cookie jar happened to be empty. Although the author shows some gender stereotypes in the book she does support gender equality. The author supports gender equality through the title of the book Play Ball, Amelia Bedelia. This shows that the author supports gender equality because most guys won’t let girls play baseball with them.
When I go into Dunkin Donuts in the morning I get the same basic greeting, same brown paper cup, and walk out feeling the same as I walked in. When I walk into a coffee shop located in my hometown; that I used to go with my grandmother when she had her book club meetings, I am greeted by the same women I’ve been greeted by for years. I’ve ordered this same drink so many times I forget the name of because I don’t even have to say anything they already know what to make. I never feel uncomfortable talking about what’s going on in my life; they’re always nonjudgmental and give the best advice. I use a coffee shop it used to be meant for- I meet up with old friends, it is a place where I can escape from a very negative world, I always come out feeling like a new
I’ve have patients who are overnight success and haven’t heard from due to then using this miracle product.” “I have a good feeling that you can do what the Dreamer’s Eye slogan, which is you can take control of your dreams and I know that your dream is to finally have a sense of control so” she bend to grab the infamous box and places it in my lap. “I went and gotten you one myself.” I didn’t say anything for awhile I didn’t even think anything for once . I just muttered a thank you and left the facility as fast as I could. I made it home placing the box on my grey sofa and glancing at the time 10:00pm hfmp traffic really does suck up a lot of time. I sat next to box looking at the bright and smiling people placing the helmet over their heads and the cartoonish don’t printed on it.
That was when she found her two hundred dollars was gone” (Hurston 118). Janie had so quickly fallen for Tea Cake and because of her past with Joe, being abused, trusting that Tea Cake would return and have her money was difficult for her to wrap her brain around. In Janie’s past relationships, the men would not let her do any of the normal labor built for a man. She is to stay in the house and do what women were expected to do, clean and cook. Janie is eager to help outside and Tea Cake is the first guy to let her do so.
I wake up every morning only to see burn holes in my bed. As I slide out of bed, I wobble towards the staircase to make some breakfast. I’ll admit it, I am a waste of my freedom. I have no job, no fun memories, no family, no purpose, and most of all, no friends. Someone needs to come into my life to lift me up from my nicotine-ridden lifestyle.
This is a problem because you may often see me tripping over myself in the classroom, spilling coffee on my shirt or pants or getting my lunch in my hair and you will either judge me or laugh at me. I have learned to laugh at myself rather than worry about your judgment because I am convinced it is a genetic trait. My oldest son is the same way and that is one reason why I love him. If you really knew me, you would know that I drink way too much coffee in the morning. I started drinking it when I worked at a horse barn in high school.
I maneuvered myself up the stairs and to the kitchen. There was already a pot of coffee brewing and the wafting aroma made me want to scream with joy. As I began pouring myself a cup my mom walked down the stairs and said “What do you think you’re doing? You know the deal, you are allowed to live here, as long as you pay rent, do your own grocery shopping and support yourself.” she reminded me. “I know mom but it’s one cup of coffee, my paycheck hasn’t come in yet and I have no money in the bank right now.”, I pleaded.
I recall all the detail of moment when I enter the shop and order until I enjoy that cup of coffee. Then I remember the moment I was liked their cup so I checked the bottom of their coffee mug. And the name of company name just came up on my brain. The Heath. After that cup of coffee in that shop, I never checked the bottom of their mug.
