The Real Sucker
Sucker CARSON McCULLERS December 12, 1996
Many Different experiences in a child\'s life help form the personality and attitude he or she will adopt later in life. One such example of this is a fictional character named Sucker. This young boy really admired his cousin Pete, whom he lived with. Sucker was just an innocent child who would believe anything Pete said. The more Sucker admired Pete, the more Pete resented Sucker. This went on until Pete met a girl. Pete was so happy that he didn\'t mind Sucker\'s admiration toward him. Sucker became a bright enthusiastic child who loved being around Pete. He was so happy that he didn\'t want anything to change. After Pete got dumped, he turned all of his frustrations toward Sucker. Sucker then treated Pete the way Pete treated him - like a nobody.
Sucker\'s real name is Richard. He got the name "Sucker" from being so gullible. One time he jumped off his garage roof with an open umbrella because Pete told him he would float down to the ground. It turned out all that happened was Sucker got a busted knee. Sucker was like any child his age. He talked to himself when he was alone, he would fight off gangsters and also pretend he was a cowboy. He was a healthy kid but he kept to himself mostly.
When Pete met Maybelle Watts this had an immediate effect on Sucker because Pete was actually treating him nicely. Sucker was flamboyant, talkative and always had a smile on his face when Pete was around. One time when the two of them went to bed they had a long talk. Pete even took Sucker to a movie with him. "You\'re a swell kid, Sucker," said Pete. Being so close to Pete made Sucker feel wonderful.
When Pete found out that Maybelle was using him, he took out all of his frustrations on the most defenseless person he knew - Sucker. When Sucker asked what was wrong Pete exploded all of his emotions on him. Sucker defended himself the only way he had left. He became very angry and cold toward Pete. Sucker became very independent and started hanging around with a bunch of friends. Pete was intimidated by the hatred in Sucker\'s eyes whenever he looked at him. Sucker didn\'t seem like a "sucker" anymore.
Through all of these ways Sucker responded to Pete\'s actions the last one had the most effect. Sucker chose to shut Pete out of his life so he wouldn\'t have to put up with him anymore. Pete now understands that you should never take people you love for granted because you just might lose them forever. "-Sometime the look in his eyes made me almost believe that if Sucker could he would kill me."

Romeo and JulietRomeo and Juliet The most important purpose for adopting a Shakespearean play to film is showing the action and the real emotion of the play. I feel the Dicaprio version fulfills this purpose better than the Zeffereli version for the following reasons. Overall it is more entertaining, more attention is paid to action scenes such as the intensity of the feud, and the music really suits the play and makes it that much easier to watch. When I say the modern version is more entertaining I mean that

Colorado RiverColorado River Geographers can tell you that the one thing that most rivers and their adjacent flood plains in the world have in common is that they have rich histories associated with human settlement and development. This especially true in arid regions which are very dependent upon water. Two excellent examples are the Nile and the Tigris-Euphrates rivers which show use the relationship between rivers and concentrations of people. However, the Colorado River is not such a good example along m
The SimpsonsThe Simpsons simpsons The American animation The Simpsons is now in its 10th season as a show in its own right.

How to Rid Yourself of a Brown-noser How to Rid Yourself of a Brown-noser When I was in the ninth grade, a girl on the basketball team felt the urge to flatter our coach. The coach didn’t see her devious flatterer, so the schmoozing continued. I was too shy and embarrassed to confront the coach or the brown-noser. I didn’t want to harm my position on the team or the relationship I had with the player or the coach.

The Only Fish I Wanted To CatchThe Only Fish I Wanted To Catch The Only Fish I Wanted To Catch A sensation of astounding warmth enshrouded my mind and body as I blankly stared out on to the choppy lake. I realized that the blinding sun was sure to burn me by the end of the day. I was completely clueless as to where the day would take me. At first I was a little apprehensive about climbing into the small rowboat and heading out there for the entire day. What if I didn’t make it back? I had never been fishing alone. All I crave

IagoIago When Shakespeare attempted to create the ultimate villain (and I must say he was stunningly successful), Iago was the result. This cunningly evil character always keeps the audience guessing at his true personality until he has the opportunity to plan in solitude or so gracefully manipulate an inferior intellect that he can let his true colors shine while preserving his image. Such is the case in act I, scene III, when he recites to Roderigo a beautifully worded speech revealing his true
