Week 6 (2) Intros Classification Essay
With the holidays coming up very quickly, I am already giving some thought as to what I will be serving for the main course at Thanksgiving. Typically, it wouldn't seem like a real Thanksgiving if you don't have turkey in some way, shape or form. My Mom always likes a ham at Thanksgiving and looks forward to using the ham bone after wards to make her "to die for" split pea soup. My Dad on the other hand, always wants a fine roast beef "so tender that you could cut it with a spoon".
As a child, I always enjoyed visiting friends and relatives in their homes. It was especially exciting to visit a new family at their home. I was always taken aback by how different their house looked from my own or pleased at how similar our houses were. There were three types of homes people lived in, I concluded. Some people lived in modest split-level ranch style homes. Others lived in very modern, glass and concrete multi-level modern homes like Frank Lloyd Wright's "Falling Water". Then there were the old Victorian type dwellings like the house I grew up in.
