“Ya did the right thing, shootin’ ‘im back there. God knows Curley wouldda done somthin’ worse.” Slim said trying to break the silence that fell upon them. George didn’t reply, he sat there looking down at the hand that had shot Lennie. It was obvious that George felt only guilt and nothing more. George muttered to himself “God dam Lennie, I told ya’, I told ya’ and ya’ still.” George became silent and clenched his hands into fists.
He looked away from the drink to where his friend was sitting only to find the seat empty. He gave an exasperated glance at the bartender who just shrugged. Then Laurens jumped out from under the counter and planted a wet, sloppy kiss right on Hamilton’s mouth. Laurens’ breath smelled of alcohol, and tasted of it too. Fuming with anger Hamilton stood up knocking over the bar stool and went to leave.
With this declaration, the older waiter places himself in the same group as the old man. Hemingway's comparison of the old man and the waiter becomes unmistakable through the words of the older waiter. Loneliness and old age are the common bonds that the older waiter shares with the old man. This is manifested through the dialogue between the two waiters. For example, when the younger waiter boasts about his youth and confidence, the older waiter jealously replies, “I have never had confidence and I am not young”(Hemingway 161).
Our story’s antagonist is the younger waiter. Though he has a respect for the old man and the older waiter, he argues against the older waiter. He also tell the deaf man that, “You should have killed yourself last week.” Not the most sympathetic man, is he? He has not yet reached the part of his life where he will experience loneliness and is very naïve. He is not a villain in the story, but he does antagonize the older waiter.
Instantly, after the man orders the drinks, the beer tap is a glowing green color whereas before it was a dreary gray and Heineken was the only type of beer on tap. The bartender changes into a superb white tuxedo as he is filling the beer order and as the lifeless bar transforms a band and a lot of people start to enter the bar. The guests are wearing nice, upscale clothes with a lot of color, beg... ... middle of paper ... ...mmercial would appeal to more Americans and Amy lovers to drink Heineken. Although Heineken beer cannot enhance anyone’s life that substantially, the 2011 Heineken’s “The Switch” Commercial persuades the audience to believe that happiness, confidence, and a bright life begins with drinking Heineken beer. The advertisement is constantly trying to grab attention to the intended target audience, a younger generation all the way to people in their forties or fifties.
The language he chose to use conveys a lot to the reader. By choosing the verb, “shuffle” and describing their boots as “greasy” Mr. Daniels paints a picture of a seedy “shift” bar where workers go after work, before work, or during work to get drunk. This is not a classy establishment. Indeed, patrons are not striding up to the bar in wingtips to procure libations here. In addition, by describing Jeannie as having “long blond hair and a nice ass”, Mr. Daniels gives the reader another insight into what kind of bar this is and what type of patrons frequent it.
The History of a Kiss What do you think of when you hear the word kiss? Milton Hershey did not want you to think of the romantic gesture of lips smacking together. Instead he invented the Hershey Kiss. This great invention is mouthwatering, milk chocolate that millions of people consume every year. The famous Kiss was invented in 1907 by Milton S. Hershey.
Apparently, Bob had unconsciously offended the poor girl. The four beers Bob had impaired his judgement, slowed his reaction time, slurred his speech, and decreased his coordination skills, which resulted in Bob's swollen cheek. Shortly after six beers, Bob unwillingly vomits under the table. Sadly, Bob can no longer walk without falling; his friends acknowledge this and decide to pick him up and carry him back home. Ethanol is the ingredient that is responsible Bob's change in behaviour.
For the old man and the older waiter, "a clean and well-lighted" cafe is such an escape. The pervading metaphor in this story is predictably, the "clean well-lighted place." The story's image of the sea of dark nothingness perfectly symbolizes a world with no hope, no solace, but darkness of reality. The lighted cafe in the sea is such an escape from the darkness of the world. It seems the old, wealthy, deaf gentleman drinks at the cafe every light, alone, to pass the time in a clean, well-lighted environment.
Don't tell me that you of all people are starting to believe what you hear in this bar." Joe lifted the bar rag and slid George's drink over. It caught on something and spilled down George's pants. Both men stared at the rock maple bar top. The drink had snagged on an impression in the bar.
