Dank Meme Ortiz

Today in class, we read another chunk of the book  The House on Mango Street. All of the chapters had their own merits, but it was the humor of the chapter, Meme Ortiz, that caught my attention. More specifically, it was the quote “This is the tree we chose for the First annual Tarzan Jumping Contest. Meme won. And broke both arms”. This was enjoyable because it seems like a straightforward statement, but it can have different meanings depending on who is reading it. I think adding little bits like this would make the story come to life and reflect the character’s personality.
