    Personal Narrative: Rodeo

    • 940 Words
    • 4 Pages

    was a local cowboy church that puts on a youth rodeo for the kids. It’s now mid-March and a crisp, cool, sunny day. One of those days that you just love looking up in the blue sky watching the fluffy, white clouds float by and as I take a deep breath, I feel the excitement of our sons first day of riding a sheep. Dylan jumps out of the cab and I say, “get in the back of the truck so we can get you ready“. As he is climbing on the tailgate, I look around at all the boys and girls and think to myself, wow they all mean business. I grab his black duffle bag and pull out all the safety gear. Let me see, helmet with face cage? Check. Flak jacket and fancy bull riding chaps? Check. The first thing I do is tape his pants and boots down so they don’t come off his foot if he gets bucked off. Next the chaps go on. Wow, I think to myself, this boy is starting to look like the cowboys he hasn’t stopped talking about for the last two months. I grab his protective flak jacket and helmet and then help him jump off the tailgate. Dylan asks, “can I go and see the sheep and other cowboys?” I tell him, “yes, but be respectful and have fun”. As my wife walks up after registering him to ride, I tell her how proud I am of Dylan and for even wanting to try this. She said, “Dylan is just like his Daddy, once you get something in your head, you won’t stop till it’s accomplished”. I just smile and give her a kiss on the cheek and tell her, “let’s go show our little cowboy the…

    pouring rain.

There was a collective groan, for we had all been hoping that the rain would stop in time for the bull riding, but it clearly hadn’t as we could all hear the intense sound of raindrops pelting the tin roof of the indoor barn. As I approached my gear, I said a quick…

    Setting the camera on my chest, I reach back across the bed for the bag containing the film paper. Unwrapping the stack of small sheets, I put five of them inside the printer compartment of the polaroid and sit up. I look around the room for a subject, but there's not much. There's my bed, my newly full closet, and some miscellaneous furniture. My head rolls onto my shoulder, shifting my view to a sunlit patch of wall. Thousands of minuscule dust motes dance around in the light, flitting from…

    Sal says of Dean Moriarty at the beginning of On The Road: “Dean just raced in society, eager for bread and love; he didn’t care one way or another” (Kerouac end of chapter 1 p1). This is reflective of Dean’s hedonistic motivations; seeking satisfaction from the sensual and emotional aspects of human nature. This “Dionysian irresponsibility” manifests in his willingness to steal “cars for joy rides” and “quietly filling the gas tank” in order to ensure the attendant doesn’t catch him stealing…

    Beloved comes out of the lake and crawls all the way to Sethe’s house.
