Chocolate Cake For Breakfast

We are going to take a break from our literature discussions on The Outsiders and do some creative writing. The idea for this creative prompt actually comes from the book.

“All three of us like chocolate cake for breakfast. Mom had never allowed it with ham and eggs, but Darry let Soda and me talk him into it. We didn’t really have to twist his arm; Darry loves chocolate cake as much as we do.” (Hinton, 104,105)

Is there something you would love to have for breakfast but are not allowed to have? What are your favorite foods for breakfast, and do you ever have breakfast for dinner? (I love!)

What is the best meal you have ever eaten? It doesn’t have to be breakfast. Please give details as far as the food descriptions are concerned, and be sure to tell about the occasion and where this meal took place.

Also, please check out the new posted videos of The Beatles and Hank Williams. The lyrics of “The Two Of Us” correlate with the theme of friendship in the book. The Hank Williams song, “I’m So Lonesome I Could Cry” speaks to the theme of ostracism. Please know the definition of this word, and be prepared for class discussion on all the song videos in regards to the song lyrics and how they relate to the themes of forbidden love, friendship, and ostracism in The Outsiders in the coming weeks. The “What’s In Your Ipod?” project/essay will revolve around these three themes.
