Ice Cream - 1,008 words
Of the numerous jobs that I have had in the last few years, only one has maintained a lasting hold on me. I return again and again to the call of serving the same gratifying, palatable treat, that amazing creation called ice cream. With the experience I have had, I could have aspired for a more professional working environment than Frosty's Frozen Yogurt or Baskin Robins. Yet, for some unknown reason, I am strangely drawn to this type of work. Consequently, seems fitting that ice cream would be the perfect metaphor for the characteristics and accomplishments that I embody. If I look at a hot fudge sundae, I see several layers, each unique with its own taste that all do a part in representing ...

The Ice Cream Incident - 912 words
The Ice Cream Incident Eric Mortinson November 18, 2002 There inevitably comes a time during the course of your life where everything you are employs itself to seek revenge from a friend or loved one. This paradoxical concept drives you to the point of hating someone you care dearly for. In the end, the typical result is absolute regret. This moment in my life came at the ancient age of 13. I was the intellectual king of my class. No cerebrum could surpass the database of knowledge I carried within me. This sovereign fantasy of mine was shattered on the nightmarish day Josh Renfro entered the 5th grade classroom at Evans Valley Elementary School. I knew immediately that I was outmatched at l ...

As Gass To Cars - 532 words
As gas to cars, food is humans source of energy. If there is no food there is no energy, If there is no energy the body cannot work, in other words, dies.

Food serves from a surviving necessity, to a luxury, to a consolation of the soul. Personally, I think that people today have forgotten about the main function of food, and instead of eating to live they live to eat. A lot of people today say that they only eat to survive. They justify their opinion by saying that they eat when they are hungry and hunger is a signal from the b ...

Hot Dog - 515 words
Sausage is one of the oldest forms of processed food, having been mentioned in Homer's Odyssey as far back as the 9th Century B.C. Fraunken-au-main, Germany, is traditionally credited with orginating the frankfurter. However, this claim is disputed by those who believe that the popular sausage-known as a "dachshund" or "little-dog" sausage-was created in the late 1600's by Johann Georghehner, a butcher, living in Coburg, Germany. Georghehner later traveled to Frankfurt to promote his new product. In 1987, the city of Frankfurt celebrated the 500th birthday of the hot dog in that city. It's said that the frankfurter was developed there in 1484, five years before Christopher Columbus set sail ...

Injustices Of Society - 440 words
Both Sides Now - by Joni Mitchell. This is a poem about a girl who has once had good experiences with love but now sees men and love as things that just get in the way. The last lines in the second and third stanzas explain this: "But clouds got in my way." and "I really don't know clouds at all." She is comparing clouds and men. My initial reaction to this poem is that it is not particularly easy to understand but after you think about for a while you can figure out what it means. This poem is of traditional form. It is a lyric poem that is divided into ten stanzas. Each stanza is four lines long. Because this is lyric poetry (it is a song) there are two different types of stanzas: verse an ...
