Suzanne Stone 10/15/2012 In the grocery checkout line in front of you, kids are hitting, screaming, throwing things, and being disobedient to their parents. At the movie theater, kids are whining and crying for more candy and popcorn, or even texting right in front of you. This can wear your nerves thin, especially when they are not your children. On the other hand, there are news flashes of bad parenting, “Mom gives 8-year-old Botox,” “Michael Jackson Dangles His Baby over a Hotel Balcony.” We all know cases of kids’ bad behavior and bad parenting, there are scads of stories and images on the internet. Let’s face it!
He was given a list of topics and like most students in high school he procrastinated until the night before the assignment was due. He regarded the list of topics one last time and alighted on the topic titled "The Art of Eating Spaghetti". (Baker, 1982) Memories started flooding to him as he commenced writing about the occasion when he and his family gathered around the table and was eating spaghetti at his Uncle Alan's house. He had finally found a topic he was delighted to write about and I believe the main point he was trying to make while writing this text was that as a writer you must write about a topic that you can enjoy. I had a sense of mirth as I was reading this essay; I even chuckled a few times to myself such as when Baker integrated a humorous part into the essay by stating, “The idea of prim Mr. Fleagle plucking his nipple from boneless gums was too much for the class”.

Baker is given an assignment by Mr. Fleagle his eleventh grade English teacher, whom baker says, “To me he looked to be sixty or seventy and prim to a fault.” (p66/3/6-7) Inspired by the memories of a night the whole family was seated at the supper table eating spaghetti. Baker began to write “The Art of Eating Spaghetti,” in which Mr. Fleagle had given Baker an “A” providing the idea of becoming a writer. Baker uses a combination of the Figurative language to engage his audience with the use of a simile and alliteration in the second paragraph, “I hated the assignments to turn out “compositions,” and went at them like heavy labor, turning out leaden, lackluster paragraphs that were agonies for teachers to read and for me to write.” (P66/2/7-9) Here Baker uses a simile to compare the burden of writing a composition to heavy labor and paragraphs that were a pain to read, while keeping the reader engage with the use of alliteration. Notice in lines 8-9, “……and went at them like heavy labor, turning out leaden, lackluster paragraphs…” (p66/2/8-9) adding the repetitious consonant sound of the

They tend to be long-lasting, and can be recalled easily because the event is highly significant and can occur in times of shocking or horrific moment.
