Sweet, Sour, and Resentful Questions on Meaning. 1. Why were weekend dinners so important to the author’s parent and their guests? Consider not just the meals themselves but the larger context that prompted them. I believe the weekend dinner was important to the author parents, because it’s their tradition and it’s something that they have done for years, and they like to bring joy. And it’s important to get people like you together, and it was their culture. . 2. In which sentence or sentences does Dumas state her THESIS most directly? “ I decided that tradition is only good if it brings joy to all involved.” (paragraph 12) 3. What would you say is Dumas’s PURPOSE in this essay? Is it primarily to entertain readers by describing her family’s weekly routine, or does she seem to have another purpose in mind? Dumas’s purpose is to educate her readers on the importance of evolution in traditions, and by describing the weekly routine is for the reader to get involved. 4. What solution to her mother’s exhausting role as hostess does Dumas propose in paragraph 12? Do you think her mother would have agreed to it? Why, or why not? Her solution to her mother was to make potluck, so it will bring joy. I believe that she will agree, because it’s a good way to take rest and enjoy the moment instead of being tired.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
