丁酉(鸡)年八月初一

Showing off (17—18)

In my mind, the author is a modest lady, because in the beginning of article, she always refutes the person who is showing off.

Is it true, or not?

After reading (the)paragraph seventeen and paragraph eighteen, my opinion varied in a big way. (my opinion altered huge.) I just got something from them. As the matter of fact, such the phenomenon (to indicate)(indicated) that the author is a real showoff.

For one thing, she likes to use the dash very much; we can see that every paragraph has no more than one dash. We do not discuss about the functions of dash firstly, it is just a showing off.

For another, the sentence “If we’d been that luck lady, we’d have worked our triumph into the conversation.” It is subjunctive to emphasize her view that it is uncommon not to work triumph into any conversation at all.

In fact, it is a human being need, (this is a people's needs)as many people are fond of showing off. They always insist on footing the bill when they are out with friends. They always think of impressing people with their wealth. They seem to think that money can buy friends. In fact, it can't. Instead of trying to show off, they should be themselves, I guess.

Moreover, the last sentence of paragraph seventeen has told us that if a stranger stopped her to ask her the directions or time, she would try to detain him to let him know she is very famous. According to this, in the past time, she was filled with arrogance, with bighead, with conceit.

So why does she write the paragraph eighteen, and what dose it stand for? Both of them pulse me.

Maybe she wants to let us know that if we were showoffs, it does not mean we are still showoffs. It can change. After some years later or some expiries, we can give up this “bad” habit.
