He tries to tell her that it would be a better use of her time, and, albeit, more enjoyable, to just lie in bed kissing him all day. Even after she decides that it is just too late to stay in bed, he tells her to go downstairs and bring up food for the two of them, as it has already reached noon. That being said, I really liked this poem. It just seemed really sweet. Unlike most of the poems we have read/analyzed so far, this one didn’t seem to be about sex.
outsider. Throughout the chapter it talks about how Anh is love smitten by this beautiful girl but cannot seem to get in a relationship with her. He says that they talk on the phone for hours on end but she still says they are just friends. This makes Anh confused about their relationship and makes him feel like an outsider, especially when she gets a boyfriend … It is a really good idea that most people can relate to which makes it very persuasive. It has a bit of evidence but could use some more, for example when you said throughout the chapter you could have inserted a quote or a point from the book.
“Sweet, Sour, and Resentful” In this story, Dumas tells Gourmet magazine how her mother prepares a Persian feast weekly for a great number of people. She tells how her mother is bitter about cooking every week for so many people and in a small place. The family had moved to the states before their friends and family, so they were called on to help adapt when they moved to the area. That’s when the weekly meals started. Dumas stated, “Displaying the hospitality that Iranians so cherish, my father extended a dinner invitation to everyone who called”(321).
In our world, many people just forget or push aside the double standards men and women face every day. These double standards are: Sluts/studs, men being the bad guy in breakups, men expected to pay for dinner, looking nice and many more. It is utterly fascinating when you really think about it. People actually believe that this is, and should be normal. To begin, the double standard that when men sleep with a lot of women, they are considered as being “studs” but when women sleep with a lot of men, they are considered as being “sluts” has been around for ages.

As she cares for him, for the first time ever she is able to speak to him without fear of censorship and he becomes, for her, like the mythical Patience Stone to which you tell your troubles and when the stone finally bursts, you are free from your torments. But also this might mean the Apocalypse. The Patience Stone is set almost entirely in one room - the bedroom of the husband and just about the only character who talks is the wife (they are referred to as Man and Woman throughout). This gives the book a strong focus that makes it feel that you are truly in the mind of the Woman throughout. It is a fact before the arrival of the Taliban, Afghan women struggled for basic rights.
This is a kind of ability and understanding you develop with your spouse after living together for some time. I am able to know the mood of my spouse just by talking to him on the phone. I can easily "predict" his response and reaction too. For example, there are a few lecturers in our college that he hates because they serve as the panels for his final design thesis which he fails. Even after many years, he would be so annoyed and I know the exact bad words he would swear if someone mentions their names in front of him.
In P.S. I love you (2007), Directed by Richard LaGravenese, the film-watcher is introduced to Gerry and Holly, a couple who are already married. They both work, but Gerry is more diligent than Holly.
