I wrote a story based on the one by Jamaica Kincaid for English class. I loved it so much I decided to post it here!

            Don’t read books, they damage your eyesight; don’t drink hot tea with cold fruit, they hurt your belly; don’t disrupt your sleeping habits, it’s unhealthy, you know; keep promises, it’s polite; always say “thank you”, “ you’re welcome”, and “good morning”, “good afternoon”, and “good night”; drink a glass of water in the morning; take the stairs whenever you can; this is how to have a whole conversation about nothing; this is how to have some talk about something; this is how to wish you could have a conversation but pretend it doesn’t affect you; I expect that you will play the piano; I expect you will learn your other language; I still expect that you will play the piano and learn your other language; do your work; study before all assessments; if you did poorly it meant you didn’t do your work; if you did poorly it meant you didn’t study; this is how you sow; this is how you crochet; but you never did teach me how to crochet, it was my friend; and I expect you to learn how to cook; help your elders; help your teachers; help your mother; don’t help your friends; you shouldn’t leave work to the last minute, daughter, haven’t you been punished enough?
