Here We Are

"Here We Are," written by Dorothy Parker I felt was a short story which represented a woman's emotions and self confidence in the early stages of marriage. "Her hat, her fur, her frock, her gloves were glossy and stiff with novelty." This sentece represented this woman with high class, high expectations, high maintance. It was almost like her newlywed husband couldnt live up to her high expectations of what she wanted in a man. It seemed everything the young man did, or said was the wrong thing or rude.

I found it interesting, throughout the story certain sentences were repeated later on. Such like these, "I mean, I mean. Here we are, here we are." I wasnt quite sure what or if there was any meaning to that sort of repetition. I'm not really sure how I felt about this short story, it was anything quite out of the ordinary. A young woman, accusing her husband of checking out another woman, not liking her outfits, and such. It just seemed to me like any other relationship to-day.

Melissa, you have a great eye for picking out the nuances in the characters that we've read about. You've got it pinned down in two sentences or less...that's a great accomplishment in and of itself. Good job.
