Wanna go for a swim?

"The old woman watched him with her arms folded across her chest as if she were the owner of the sun, and the daughter watched, her head thrust forward and her fat helpless hands hanging at the wrists.  She had long pink-gold hair and eyes as blue as a peacock's neck."  (O'Connor 54)


I choose this mainly because i liked the comparisons that were in it.  just the vivid color of blue used to describe the daughter's eyes makes you think that you could just jump into the bright blue pools and swim around in her soul.  and the way that you can just imagine the mother's face, how stern she probabley looked.  to guard the sun would not be an easy job, but she was doing it just fine.  what a powerful woman
