I was also saying let leave this is pointless and I never want to fish again I don't even catch anything." But unfortunately we had to stay there for the rest of the day and that felt like the longest day of my little kid life.

She rose and stepped off the porch and in one swift motion snatched up the rooster, tucked his body under her left arm, and with her right hand pulled off his head … —He 'll be stringy, so we 'd best stew him awhile, Ruby said.” (Frazier, 68) Ruby has a knack for being practical.

Some things are bad when they happen once, but what about when they happen multiple times? I can definitely relate to this, because I have broken the same two teeth four times! Am I clumsy or is it just bad luck? Maybe riding a ride I was not tall enough for, playing chicken in the pool with younger kids, or not paying attention at volleyball practice and getting hit in the face was a bad idea, as they each led to the crunch of crunches and a pain that runs from my head to my toes.

On the planet Venus, it has been raining for seven years, causing nothing but sadness to the nine year old students living there. “A thousand forests had been crushed under the rain and grown up a thousand times to be crushed again”(Bradbury 1). When Bradbury puts the words “crushed again,” in the text, it symbolizes how much the rain affected the lives of those living on Venus. Just like how the trees were getting crushed, all the childrens dreams of experiencing summer were crushed by the rain, making the rain the evil figure of the story. But, as soon as the sun comes out, the children are jubilant and, “They were running and turning their faces up to the sky and feeling the sun on their cheeks like a warm iron”(Bradbury 3).
SWIM I felt at least five hands smack my back screaming “great job and way to go.” then the lifeguard came in and was asking what had happened and I could barely talk because I was smiling so much because I was extremely happy. When everyone stopped talking I finally told the lifeguard that a boy that could not swim very well tripped and fell into the pool, because he was messing around pretending to jump in during adult swim, so I jumped in and grabbed while he struggled to swim and was slowly drowning I pulled him to the side of the pool and lifted him over the edge and then got out of the water and everyone was waiting to congratulate me.

There was a slight cool breeze at the top of Mt. Cardigan during mid Fall, the landscape was a beautiful painting made by the earth and sky. I could see blue ponds reflecting the clear sky like a giant mirror, some trees had begun to turn orange, yellow, or red, while other trees still held on to their green.

Three of my friends and I were out of place on this mountain because we did not come up with a dog or even hiking boots on.
