Alarmed (Short Story) - 5/1/2014 5:50:08 AM|
Well written. It is a pleasure not to have to self edit what I'm reading. As I've told many others, Microsoft Word has hidden formatting that messes up the AD editor. You should downgrade your document to text (.txt) or rich text format (.rtf) by saving in one of those formats. After copying, make sure that you paste it special (not just paste-I use Paste and Match Style) in your browser under the edit menu.
Typical brother and sister behavior. A psychiatrist once told my sister (she suffered from agoraphobia and wouldn't leave the house until she found a drug that worked after she was over 40 years old) that she was that way because she was surrounded by twin brothers both older and younger, and didn't get the attention she deserved. We work together on the important things (my ailing mother), but many of her ideas and problems are the direct opposite of mine.
What alarms me is that these kids did not know what the sound of the smoke alarm was. Smoke is often undetected until it is too late. Hearing that alarm requires immediate action, not thinking something else is happening.

With all that is written and reported about kids and divorced parents, I have never known anyone to mentioned the inbetween feeling.
Very perceptive Susan.

I wrote this story with the idea that it could be a starting point for discussion in a family or classroom setting. I also added comprehension and discussion questions and used it with my adult literacy students, as many of them were dealing with similar situations.

Is this the short cat syndrome?
