Imagery

Picture a typical Thanksgiving dinner: “On the floor, three small children and a dog who long ago had her brain eaten by fleas are running as fast as they can directly into things, trying to injure themselves.”



Barry creates the images of a normal family and how if you dont pay attention to the kids they will get hurt. In this part of the story the imagery created shows how crazy his kids are, that they are really hard to control, and like some fathers he tries to make an excuse to not watch them.


Details

“Nobody wants to engage in human sexual activity with somebody who smells vaguely like yams and is covered with a thin layer of turkey grease, which describes pretty much everybody in the United States on Thanksgiving except the Detroit Lions, who traditionally play football that day and would therefore be too tired”



The author adds this detail to add humor to his essay and make a point while expressing his desire but pointing out that everybody in america over stuffs themselves.



He uses his words to show how the common people are, that staying at home is the new career for men, and that the word “coated” is the uniform for him as a stay at home dad.
