You’ve probably heard the saying “the early bird gets the worm.” I never really understood the meaning. Who would want a worm? But, a week ago I experienced it. My friend Juan and I found out that our favorite band was playing a free concert in Town Square. We made a plan to show up at 10am. The concert would begin at 6pm. Our goal was front row seats. Juan brought snacks and I brought blankets. We were the first ones there, had an amazing time hanging out all day in the sun, and got front row seats. We were the early birds and got the “worm” front row seats!

B to let the reader make a connection between the saying and character’s experience
C to let the reader come to their own conclusion
D to teach the reader a lesson
Poetry The Mask by Charlene Valladares I look in the mirror at the beginning of each day, and ask myself what mask I should place on my face today. No not the sad one it's too revealing, I don't want to show the world my true feelings. For the mask that you can see camouflages the true me. It's my public face that I remove each night, when I bare my soul the mirrors light. It's the one meant for only my eyes to see it speaks of all my history. It tells of my youth and girlish ways, my adolescents and my young woman’s dreams.It tells of good times of which I had my share of love lost and pain so hard to bear.So I choose my mask so carefully, to cover the face that was given to me, the one that was meant for only my eyes to see.
