He then begins to give examples of how his wife might threaten their children if they do anything wrong. “From time to time, my wife also threatens to knock the children to Kingdom Come. If she ever does knock them there, she’s going to ask me to go get them, and I will not know where it is.” (47) The sarcastic and humorous tone of that section is strictly focused on his wife or any wife in the same situation, motherhood and the overall message that Cosby is trying to convey is that the wife/mother is the boss 100% of the time. Now in the Clean Hands section he turns his focus and tone towards the father or himself, how when the father does any punishing toward the children, that the mother will shelter the children. “The problem is consistency: there isn’t any.
My view on change relates to Richard’s in “The Prince of Los Cocuyus” because we both faced being misunderstood, new beginnings, changes in surroundings, trying to fit in and pursuing dreams. Transitioning from high school to college can cause many misunderstandings between teachers and students. One instance in the book that I found was an amazing comparison to being misunderstood was when Abuela took Richard to Winn Dixie because the chicken was on sale. As they were about to pay, the sales lady explained to them that there was a limit of two chickens per customer. Abuela completely flipped out and could not comprehend this fact (13,14).

Applying the concept of the five steps of listening on this film was fairly entertaining, beginning with Coral, Nemo’s mom. As she tries to save her eggs from the evil barracuda, Coral chose to be very selective in her listening. She saw the barracuda in a short distance, and all she could think about was saving her eggs forgetting about her own safety. Marlin tells Coral to get back into the anemone, but she completely blocks him out of her hearing. Coral’s selective hearing finishes with barracuda eating her and all except for one of her eggs.
Then, they call a woman neighbor who knows everything to come by and help them figure out who he is. After taking a look at the old man, she insists that he is “an angel” and advises them to club the old man to death, but they lack the heart to do it. Her reaction to the man with wings is indeed influenced by what she has been taught. This is a typical example of a religious person. Meanwhile, Pelayo does not know what to do with the man so he locks him in the chicken coop over
Women Work: Maya Angelou Maya Angelou starts off the poem with the repetition of an idea. Starting off with the word the, she then follows it with a spit fire of all the chores she must accomplish. Such as, “The floor to mop The food to shop the chicken to fry The baby to dry” a feel of rushed over whelming is felt adding to the effect of the poem because of the exclusion of punctuation. The struggle of this women is felt as she uses repetition to show how much she must actually get done in a day; simply reading all her chores is enough to exhaust the reader. Also, the repetition of the use of natural elements allows the reader to get to know the woman as connected to nature while giving us a strong sense of wide open spaces.
When the egg industry doesn't seem productive enough for penny-pinching Mrs Tweedy, she decides that chicken pies are a better business endeavor, considering how plump most of the chickens are. With each attempted escape, Ginger earns solitary confinement in the coal bin, and when a chicken is axed for not producing enough eggs, Ginger is distraught. But when she spies Rocky, a cocky American rooster, flying through the air, she hatches an idea. Rocky literally falls into the flock of antsy hens, and believing he can fly, Ginger convinces him to teach her and the others to fly so they can finally escape. Rocky outwardly agrees, but hopes to make his escape as soon as possible, as it is soon revealed that Rocky is actually a circus performer, and his "flying" was more like falling in convenient grace.

But if it were, doubt not her care should be to comb your noddle with a three-legged stool and paint your face and use you like a fool” (I, i, 61-65). Kate threatens her potential suitors just like how Michonne fought off potential groups of people for her to survive with. But they both eventually give in, Kate marries and Michonne finds Rick and the others from the show and joins forces with them. Petruchio’s dominance over kate is very powerful. This is much like how many marriages have the “who wears the pants in the relationship’” effect.
When Newman says, “I probably cried when the bride kissed her parents” and that she is “eating the entrée I checked off months ago” I feel she doesn’t just like weddings but wants one of her own. I believe that these are common feelings for any girl at a wedding, especially those that want their own. Newman claims her reasons for not being married are “all only partly true and shot through with contradiction” (61). A contradiction she has with marriage is what she explains it to be, “marriage is about handing the woman off, like a baton, from her father to her husband” (61). Men are continually thinking about owning the greatest “possessions” (wives, money, etc.)
