Who throws a cat?
after i read "Mothers Day" i was really confused and almost upset. i simply do not understand why she through the cat. i mean the story in general seemed sort of random to me. i get that mothers day is coming up and she gets sick so she cant go and buy her mother a present in time to give it to her on mothers day but what are we the audience supposed to take from this story? she is going through puberty and i know that is probably tough on her but that does not leave us with very much to reflect on. what i like about most of the stories that we have read in class thus far is that they take us places where most of us have never been before. "Mothers Day" takes us nowhere extraordinary and that is what i do not like very much about it. on top of all of what i dont like about this book already is the incident with the cat. now i do have a cat but that is not the reason i dont like what happened to it. i thought about how the cat fits into the story for quiet a while after reading this story and could not come up with a definate answer. today in class i even brought the subject up and im not sure we really defined the cat incident then so i remain confused. does anybody have a thought on this?
