If this poem is read literally, it is incredibly repulsive, as it talks about eating tongues and hearts in a cannibalistic nature.When read figuratively, however, the poem is seemingly understandable and somewhat humorous. The speaker uses a tongue and a heart to characterize her sister’s and brother’s issues with the speaker. The “small bones and gristle” (3) of the tongue indicate a sharp speaker, capable of conceiving sarcastic retorts. This description sounds harsh, and causes the reader to feel uneasy. She goes on to say, "it will probably grow back" (6), indicating that even if her sister’s attitude is resolved for a little while, it will come back.
For example, in the first few paragraphs, we get a hint of how Connie’s mother is constantly nagging and complaining about how vain she is and how she is nothing like her sister. Speaking from a logical standpoint we can say that this negative backlash from her mother is upsetting to her, as it should be for any normal human being. Since she is receiving such negative attention in her home she goes out to seek “positive” attention. Her mother’s continuous praising of how great Connie’s sister June is, and how much better she is than her can be draining and irritating. Connie could just be going out to get the praise and attention that she needs or “deserves”.
Sometimes, friendships can be tricky, like between Luciana and Rosaura in the short story The Stolen Party by Liliana Heker. Rosaura believes that Luciana and her are great friends but if you asked Luciana, she wouldn’t agree. In The Stolen Party by Liliana Heker, the theme is obviously that friendships can be one-sided because Rosaura believes Luciana and her are good friends but it is shown by descriptive language and hints from the author that Rosaura is just at Luciana’s party to work. Even though some people might say the theme is fake friends are obvious, I disagree because throughout the text, Rosaura doesn’t realize that Luciana isn’t actually her friend, therefore it was not obvious to her. The first piece of evidence to support the theme is that Rosaura believes she is great friends with Luciana but she is treated different than all of Luciana’s other friends.
When we turned around, my mom pulled out of her little cross body bag a tiny bottle of that incredible hot sauce. We could not believe that she actually carry it with her. Having that bottle made our meals just how we wanted -delicious and spicy. That was one of the many times that I have confirmed that my mom has the superpower of appearing whatever she
Choose a single anchor color for the bulk of your pieces and then accent with a second color. You can do this by wrapping a napkin of each color in a single napkin ring, stacking colorful plates or laying a table runner over your tablecloth. Adding white to this color scheme always works, but make sure any other colors are muted and used sparingly so as not to overwhelm your table. You can also set your table in muted tones and add small pops of color with bright coffee mugs or bold napkins. Curb Calorie Counting Spring gatherings should be all about fun, which means never skipping dessert.
Our problems started many years ago due to her constant nagging and belittling nature. In my opinion, she is a perfectionist who goes out of her way to make me look bad in family gatherings. I lost faith in her abilities to offer sound motherly advice since she is very petty and malicious. This is the main reason why I opt out of family gatherings where she is in attendance. In the few instances where I have to attend such meetings, I have to maintain a pretentious appearance of liking her and enjoying her lame jokes.
Franny tries to play the role of a good girlfriend listening and paying attention to what her boyfriend Lane has to say, but there bickering at one other cause Franny to argue with Lane on how she hates people that are phoniness and just wants to fade into the background and be a nobody.

As though they might have believed that they were the best, but when facing reality, this façade is completely hidden and the individual has to face. This example can be seen back to the story how Miss Brill was calling out on couples passing by and being jealous the way women look/ dresses. She illustrates females in a negative manner and males in a more positive manner. When finally a couple approaches they call Miss Brill a “stupid old thing” this phrase destroyed Miss Brill’s confidence and made her realize the harsh truth of reality. Agreeing with Mansfield’s point of truth is more important than idealism when accepting self.
Both sisters now in trouble and are said to be put to death. Antigone in the views of some readers may be the less loyal sister for putting Ismene in the situation to go against the law and to go against her beliefs. In the eyes of other readers, Ismene is the less loyal sister as her loyalty in the beginning did not lie with her family. The different beliefs of the sisters have an affect on the central theme by both showing and not showing loyalty to one another. Antigone's loyalty became questionable as she let her sister get in trouble for something she didn’t want any part in.
“I was not so sure, but Jem told me I was being a girl, that girls always imagine things, that’s why other people hated them so, and if I started behaving like one I could just go off and find some to play with” (Lee 54). This quote also shows how Scout thinks that being called a girl is bad when it is not. In this quote it also shows gender discrimination when Jem is talking to Scout. “ Jem was scowling triumphantly. ‘Nothin‘ to it.
