The parents decided that the kids were getting too addicted to the nursery so they put a restriction on it. The kids trick the parents into the nursery and wish they would go away. The Lions ate the parents then the vultures finished the parents off. Ray Bradbury uses a lot of mood and similes in The Veldt to deepen the sense of emotion. On page three the dad says ”That sun.
An example of Ponyboy almost maturing from the influence of Darry and Sodapop, is when their parents were killed in a car crash. When their Parents died it caused them to get closer and look out for eachother more (#3). Darry then decided to step up and “come of age” to try to be a father like figure for Ponyboy. Ponyboy doesn’t seem to think that Darry cares for him because of the way Darry treats Ponyboy so Ponyboy turns to Sodapop more, “Sodapop is different from anybody; he understands everything...almost. Like he 's never hollering at me all the time the way Darry is, treating me like I’m six instead of fourteen,” (#2).
There was a time when he was very confused on what he was capable of doing. For example, in chapter 1 page 9 the text states, “I don’t remember touching her but the next thing I knew, Nancy was sitting on her butt in the fountain screaming,”Percy pushed me!”” It seems that Percy’s powers responded to his actions as he somehow pushed Nancy Bobofit into the water. Another example is when Percy made made it to camp half blood (chapter 5, Riordan) , Percy was being spoon fed Ambrosia nectar which what percy said tastes like,”It was chocolate chip cookies. Liquid cookies.” the text states (page 60 chapter 5, Riordan). Percy didn’t realize that the Ambrosia nectar was very much harmful to a regular human, and as we know if that was Percy’s turning point to know that Percy was special.

Every time the children talk about the Jack-in-the-box, it is grey days. The children are making stories about the Jack-in-the-box and his personality, such as him being an evil wizard or that his box is a Pandora’s box and that Jack is there as a guardian to prevent all the bad things from coming out (page 72, lines 3-8). Notwithstanding of the fact that the children have never seen him (the Jack-in-the-box), they still make these stories about him. The whole idea about the children making all these stories up contributes to the fact that one of the themes is childhood. Since they are children, they do not know how to describe it correctly, so they use their creativity to explain it to the best of their
After the ghosts visit, Scrooge has learned his lesson of what his business actually is. Ebenezer Scrooge is initially evil, but after given a chance, he becomes kind.

The text states: “His aunt, with an explosive quickness that made me jerk in every nerve, snatched the wooden spoon out of the bowl of batter and hit him across the face. Harvey’s eyes opened a little more, but only a little. (Page 40)” This violent act, and Harvey’s almost nonchalant response, shows that this abuse is regular and has been going on for a long time. Also, how she assumes how Harvey is automatically guilty of stealing the telescope, without even asking him. His life at home is a negative external effect, and would have negative impacts on his attitude and actions.
My Country Mineral Zucchini “Yee-haw,” mimics Fred as I turn on 97.3, and House Party comes on. He honestly makes me want to curl in a ball and die when he tries to make fun of my music with his lame attempts especially when he knows not to talk to me. “Hahahaha,” Paige loudly reacted to Fred 's horrible attempt to make me laugh, I however did not show emotion as I usually do around my family. “Hey no,” I try to defend my taste in music because music has feelings and I take it as my duty to defend those feelings. “Do you like that?” Fred directed this question more at Paige than me, probably because he knows I wouldn 't acknowledge his question.

1 August 21, 2015 Laughter My father and I visited my uncle’s grave recently and my father told me that without me, he would still most likely be depressed about his brother. He said that even though it hurts knowing he can’t be with us anymore, he’s glad to have a son that makes him smile and laugh constantly.

I never felt so good in my life and discovered that making people laugh was what I was born to do.
