As I’ve been reading the Grapes of Wrath, I noticed that I have started to grow a little fond of the book. The story is quite slow, but it isn’t too bad after all. On a nice Thursday morning, my teacher assigned the class what’s called the 1-pager.
It’s basically a summary of a chapter, the book, or a scene, with illustrations, quotes, and a phrase to show the readers what or why you feel is important. I chose a chapter to summarize, not of the main character literally, but of the life of an everyday person who wants a car.
“Anyone who thinks they’re too grown up or too sophisticated to eat caramel corn, is not invited to my house for dinner.”
That’s probably what I would say. You’re never too old to have the little pleasures in life! Who cares if an adult eats something ‘childish’ like candy once in a while? That doesn’t determine who you are. And who are they to judge you? Just a quick little remind to be yourself and let no one stop you from being who you really are. Stay strong, fellow chickeneers.
