“How do you know Naomi?” Everyone, including Naomi, had a shocked expression on their face as if they couldn’t believe he asked.
“Well Isn’t it obvious,” Naomi vulgarly butted in before I could get my response out. “We’re cousins.” Everyone’s, except for Michael and his already dumb looking smile, expression switched from shocked to relieved after her answer.
“Oh thank goodness,” Ariana cooed, putting her hand over her heart. “My apologies, Tre. I wrongfully excused you for something you didn’t do.”
“I told you there was nothing to worry about, Ariana,” Tia heavily laughed with a hint of nervousness. “He couldn’t possibly pull a girl of that high of caliber without doing some dirty work in advance.”
“My bad, bro,” Mike whispered, coming over and patting me on the arm. “I didn’t know you had such a fine cousin. Can you hook me up with her?”
“I don’t remember ever seeing you,” I told Naomi, now being the one who was confused.
“You don’t?” she asked with a sour face. “It hurts my feelings knowing you don’t remember your favorite cousin.”
Favorite Cousin? Is such a thing possible? “Refresh my memories.”
“I used to come over your house all the time back in middle and high school.”
Oh yeah… I got a cousin name Naomi? “Doesn’t come to mind.”
“Now I know you must be playing. You still haven’t changed, I see.”
“There’s no need to change,” I shrugged. “And there’s must’ve not been any reason for me to remember you if I can’t remember you.”
Wasn’t hard to tell she was pissed after hearing me say that. “So you actually forgot about me, Tre?” she laughed, in a crazy, psycho type of way. “That’s fine, I’m just going to have to jog your memory.”
... middle of paper ...
...nt. Why does she always have to ruin the moment?
“Then why are you looking at me like that, if you don’t mind me asking. Do I have something on my face? Is it paint?!”
“Just thinking how you are such a nice person,” I sarcastically told her.
“Oh?” She seemed confused, but managed to cover it up with a smile and thumbs up. “Thank you for the observation.”
“What, you’re not taking it as a compliment?”
“You don’t compliment others, but simply make observations,” she explained, tapping me lightly on the nose. “Although, they really are compliments with a slick remarks tagged along at the end, but you refuse to admit it.”
“Is that so?” She thinks she has me all figured out.
“Of course.” She walked over to the passenger side and opened the door. “Now can we please go; it’s starting to get cold.”
I’m actually starting to enjoy hanging around her… A little… For today?

- Define a beautiful woman. What kinds of adjectives come to mind. Do her inner qualities make her beautiful as well. What does "beauty is only skin deep" really mean.

Did you ever wonder how this came about and why we all do this today. dont try to deny it, were all shallow and addicted to entertainment, its simply our culture, our way of life....

- The True Woman "A Woman’s Place", the name of the commencement speech given by Naomi Wolf at the Scripps College graduation in 1992; contrasts the independent and the dependent woman. In today’s society, there are two different types of women: the woman who has a good head on her shoulders and knows where she is going in the world, and the woman who seeks dependence within the masculine world. Just as they were thirty years ago, women are still not considered to be equal to men. They are more or less looked at as being second to men.... [tags: Feminism]

- You’re a Poet and You Should Know It (Essay on How Close We are to Poetry) Cassandra Clare once said, “Only the very weak-minded refuse to be influenced by literature and poetry.” This is in a similar fashion to Naomi Shihab Nye’s perspective on poetry. Though people may like to pretend that poetry is not a part of everyday life, this is simply not the case. Poetry can be found all around, throughout the world, and everywhere you look. Poetry is not simply the act of stringing words together into lines and those lines into stanzas.... [tags: Poetry, Naomi Shihab Nye, Writing, Emotion]

- Lines 85-97 of Tillie Olsen's first published poem "I Want You Women Up North to Know" contain the climactic turning point of this poem, and the language and form reflect this change. Instead of being humble and disjointed victims who remain mostly anonymous, the workers are transformed into an angry and unified group of distinct individuals. This shift in mood is accomplished by three devices: imagery, grouping, and capitalization of proper names. The imagery in this passage helps turn the tone of the poem from victimization to anger....

- Naomi Klein’s No Logo states that corporations have been championing globalization using the reasons that globalization allows U.S. consumers to benefit from cheaper products produced abroad, while developing nations benefit from the economic growth stimulated by foreign investments.
