, incest, and everything in between. It gives the viewer an interesting way to look at the many problems that American families go through in their lives today. The story is about the dysfunctional Weston family brought together by the tragedy of a lost family member. The family has to deal with the loss of a loved one, and on top of that, an alcoholic, a drug abuser, a troubled young girl, and a very lost couple who doesn’t know what to do. This play is extremely unpredictable and by George Judy, who is plastered drunk. It opens up the play with a funny sense of humor and right when you think it’s going to slow down, Violet Weston, played by Cristine McMurdo-Wallis walks in. She is stumbling down the stairs cursing and talking about how many pills she’s on. The story starts with showing the dysfunctions of the family and gets more dysfunctional as the story goes on. It is an amazing play that is as dramatic as it is hilarious. The Acting in this play is really great, and Cristine McMurdo-Wallis leads the cast with a very realistic and convincing character. She plays an eccentric drug abuser that loses her husband, Beverly. You can feel her pain and can empathize how one would feel if they were to lose a family member. In one scene she is extremely wasted, dancing obnoxiously to happy, upbeat music by herself. She is acting like she doesn’t care what happened to her husband. A second later she slams her record player shut and starts bawling crying. This scene shows her amazing acting skills by being able to express her…
In chapter four the topic was health and illness. In the first part of the chapter it talked about how do you define health. The book described health basically as a when a person can do functions or tasks that they want to do without any issues. While reading this I thought to myself how much I take this for granted. My description of health prior to this would have been exercising and eating healthy daily. Before this chapter I only thought that being healthy encompassed the lifestyle that comes…

Dear Sir/ Ma’am,
I am a tenant at the above address. I am writing this letter requesting an urgent need of planning permission for the same.
It is an urgent appeal as we are a family of four having to sleep in one small bed, which includes a 7 month old baby and a 3 year old toddler. The boiler has been fixed recently by the council as it was cheaper…
closed on him. 'You know what I could do?'
Crooks seemed to grow smaller, and he pressed himself against the wall. 'Yes, ma'am.'
'Well, you keep your place then, nigger. I could get you strung up on a tree so easy it ain't even funny.'
Crooks had reduced himself to nothing. There was no personality, no ego--nothing to arouse either like or dislike. He said, 'Yes, ma'am,' and his voice was toneless. For a moment she stood over him [like a victorous prize fighter] as though waiting for him to…

that you like it; and if you please to keep it, ma'am, that's all."
"But that's not all," said the lady. "Spend your time no more in weeding
in my garden, you can employ yourself much better; you shall have the
reward of your ingenuity as well as of your industry. Make as many more
such mats as you can, and I will take care and dispose of them for you."
"Thank'e, ma'am," said Jem, making his best bow, for he thought by the
lady's looks that she meant to…
of the country and world because their social conventions and their moral beliefs will differ. For example, as a civilian and not raised with military parents I wasn’t taught to say ma’am and sir, however living here, next to Fort Hood and a brother- in-law in the service my nieces and nephew are raised saying ma’am and sir. That is the culture of the area; perhaps it is part of a southern trait. The fact that every part of the world has different views and values, moral skepticism comes into play…
class that they cannot even hire waiters that can take three orders?! If they only have one waiter, they should at least make it a good one.
Waiter Chris: (*mumbles*) I don’t know if I’m incompetent… Yes ma’am! I’m sorry! (yells, but somewhat sadly) I’ll be back with your order soon ma’am!
Chef Daniel: Is the service to your satisfaction ladies…?
Ms.Rodriguez: No! He’s a total n00b and I could totally pwn him with my level 77 warrior.
Chef Daniel: Errr…?
Chef Daniel sneaks away, and…
and they do not have a good reputation in the community. Very often, she does not get any respect from others. When Atticus was doing his cross examination with Mayella, she thought he was mocking her by calling her “miss” or “ma’am”. “Long’s he keeps on callin’ me ma’am and sayin’ Miss Mayella. I don’t hafta take his sass. I ain’t called upon to take it” (207). This shows that Mayella is not used to being treated gallantly like other women in society. The Ewells are usually ignored by everybody…
Needful Things Summary (Spoiler Warning Ma’am)
I enjoyed this book immensely in the past so I decided to re-read it as it is one of my very favorite stories by Steven King next to my very favorite “The Bachman Books” I believe that Steven King did the right thing by ending his town that has been used in so many books in such a way as this, it is much more subtle then many of his other books and is slightly slow moving but overall it is very entertaining and I would recommend it to any intermediate…
“Thank you Ma’am” is a short story written by Langston Hughes. It features two main characters, Mrs. Luella Bates Washington Jones, the protagonist, and Roger, the antagonist. This story is an excellent source of social value and the author does a great job connecting to the audience. It takes place at night while Mrs. Jones walks home from work and a boy, Roger, decides to steal her purse and fails. The story takes a unique alteration after Mrs. Jones has roger in her custody. She…
I dare say that she might have even been mad!"
"That I am uncertain about. The fact that she was mad may not be true. So, are you indicating that all the happenings recalled was a complete set-up?"
"Oh yes, why not?"
"Why do you say that, ma'am?"
"Because in the occasions in which she had witnessed the apparitions, no other had witnessed it besides her alone."
"But that does not make it hard to believe that she did see the ghost, I assume."
"Yes, you are right, but the fact that Miles'…
