“Remember, remember how I showed you that suitcase with little wheels so we would not have to carry those heavy bags when we traveled? Someone stole my idea and made a million!”(Alvarez 903).
In ninth grade, I was chosen by my English teacher... to deliver the teacher’s day address at the school assembly...This time my imagination jammed...The weekend before our Monday morning assembly I went into a panic...(Alvarez 904).
My mother tried to calm me down.... I’ll help you.”All weekend, she kept coming into my room with help... (Alvarez 904).
That Sunday evening, I was reading some poetry to get myself inspired...That night, at last, I started to write, recklessly, three, five pages...I finally sounded like myself in English!(Alvarez 904).
As soon as I had finished that first draft, I called my mother to my room...“That is a beautiful, beautiful speech, Cukita. I want for your father to hear it before he goes to sleep... He snatched my speech out of my hands... and then once, twice, three, four, countless times, he tore my prize into shreds.( Alvarez 905).
I was on my knees, weeping wildly...“Chapita!” I said in a low, ugly whisper...Finally, my mother came up and pleaded with me to go down and reconcile with him...I found him setting up a brand new electric typewriter on the kitchen table."(Alvarez 909).
