He then sits quietly and hopes the two men won’t see the connection between him and his wife, and that is also the reason for him not saying goodbye to his wife. It almost seems like he acquires the point of view the two unidentified men have. The troubles of Doreen and Earl’s relationship are also made clear by this fact, because this clearly shows that if he hasn’t noticed the extra pounds, then he obviously haven’t been looking. Earl has been living his life completely blind and detached, so detached that he has no visible love for his wife. When he finally wakes up and sees his wife for what she really is, he sees her through the eyes of two strangers.
What wasn’t normal was that she was sad, very sad. I had never seen my grandmother cry, that I could remember, and even worse I had no idea why she was crying. Now I can’t believe she didn’t cry more. Then she went to the hospital for a long time for various surgeries, and plans on what to do next. My brother and I stayed at my Grandpa’s house most of the time she was up there mostly only going home to sleep and get ready for school the next day, it was weird and confusing but my grandpa was good at getting our minds off of things and keeping our spirits up when he needed to.

My mother read to me every night until I fell asleep. I can remember having dreams about the fairytales she read to me. My father let me pick a book out of the Scholastic paper I use to get every month at school. It didn’t matter how much the book cost he never said no. Welty said, “Neither of my parents had come from homes that could afford to buy many books, but though it must have been something of a strain on his salary, as the youngest officer in a young insurance company, my father was all the while carefully selecting and ordering away for what he and Mother though we children should grow up with.”(Welty, 391) I remember my father giving me his old Hardy Boys books when I was about eight years old.

Mary tries to divert him with the usual domestic comforts but to no avail.
After Dmitri finally responds to her comment, Chekhov states that “Then they went on eating in silence, like strangers. After dinner though they walked off together—and they began to talk a little of free, happy people, who do not care where they go or what they talk about.” Though the silences in the first conversation seem to only highlight the kind of awkwardness two people share when they first meet, they actually set the stage for a repeated pattern of tense silences that predict the difficulty in the relationship. 1 The next silence comes after a week of continued daily meetings and unfolds the
He describes how the old man tried committing suicide the previous week only to be saved by his niece. It seems as though the old man’s escape from this lonely world is this well lit cafe, it is clean and it is safe. It’s sort of his anesthesia from his daily life, being that the old man is also deaf and had no one who would be waiting for him. A conversation ensues from this between an old waiter and young waiter who are keeping the cafe that evening. It seems as though the younger waiter doesn't understand why anyone would want to drink by themselves.
(It has the feel in some ways of one of Kate Chopin's stories about the days after the civil war in the American South but is better written). Bella Fleace is all alone in her great manors house. Her family is either all dead or think about her only when they wonder when she will finally die so they can inherit from her (she is 80). Her servants have an easy life as she does not really observe what a state of disrepair her house has fallen into as she rarely leaves her room. Somehow Bella gets the idea she should throw a huge grand society party.
He thinks that the Senior House is a better choice for the both of them as his mother would be happier there. Despite in actuality, Meursault’s mother did enjoy a blissful before her death, the fact that Meursault shows no emotion towards both his mother and her demise is incongruent to the social trend.

They are merely concerned with the inconsistency that Meursault’s actions pose to the social norm.
