Twenty minutes later, the meals arrived, which wasn’t too bad in timing, but they came out cold. To me, this means they were prepared earlier but sat too long because a waiter/waitress forgot about them. The bar was out of wine but no alternative beverage was offered. Two additional requests had to be made for silverware and napkins. The manager was sought and Mr. Wallace was given a second serving of cannelloni but the rest of the family ate their cold meals.
The author also uses antithesis in describing the rich vs. poor, notables vs. the others to share that status doesn’t matter. Saturday; the day of rest, was the chosen for our expulsion. The night before, we had sat down to the traditional Friday night meal. We had said the customary blessings over the bread and the wine and swallowed the food in silence. We sensed that we were gathered around that familial table for the last time.

The thoughts of his friends degrading him for eating “Asian” food for lunch dwelled in his subconscious for months, or perhaps even years. Pedro’s solution was simple: get rid of the traditional Asian food and eat whatever everyone else eats, which was Lunchables. He simply wanted to fit in and not be teased anymore. He felt utter humiliation, so refraining himself from bringing what his mom packed him for
When we are primarily introduced to her we can sense she may cause trouble among the men. She is described as having “full, rouged lips and wide-spaced eyes, heavily made up” it is clear that she craves attention and the only way she sees she is able to receive it is by acting shamelessly around the men. She is unhappy in her marriage and although she flirts with the other men what she wants is not an affair or a relationship but companionship. Loneliness is a theme often associated with the migrant workers in America during the 1930s, but Curely’s wife is in fact the person who experiences it most.

While she’s arguing with Walter she says to Mama, “That individual in the room is no brother of mine”(884). She is awfully mean to Walter and her family.
I have been on many outings such as dinners, weddings and beach days with his father there. There has not been a single time that where people surrounding are not staring or questioning his current state.

This is an acruate representation of how people who a have limited time spent with the disabled react. I agree with this essay in the sense that people tend to feel uneasy when seeing a person with a disiablitty.
It was nice to know she had my back. We agreed that during our lunch break we would go talk to Mr. Simpson as we headed to our first class of the term. I had just sat down when Zig and Maya walked in and sat down next to us. I said my hellos to Zig and continued to ignore Maya. I hadn't spoken to her since she outted my relationship with Mr. Yates and I didn't have any plans to.
