I think events such as Greatest International Scavenger Hunt (GISH) are of high necessity for the young generation. We need to teach the essentialism of random acts of kindness from an early age. I feel like Lisa felt joy while completing the hunting task as these types of activities boost the emotions of the receiver and the giver. I like the phrase “the good outweighed the risks”, as kindness surpasses all the limits we set in our minds.
Sarah’s remark on the simplicity of actions that can shift someone’s mood and attitude is what many people do not realize. I agree that it does not cost much money and does not take much time to be polite and careful to another person, despite him or her being a stranger or a close friend. Little things make a difference, and sometimes that is what counts.
King Tut’s tomb is adorned with many items which seem to be of incredible beauty and origin. The illustration of this is the lines such as “gorgeous chest brightly painted with hunting and battle scenes.” The exclusiveness of objects is addressed by bylines, “cat-like shapes, arms like wing serpents” or “a tall couch decorated with animal faces that were half hippopotamus and half crocodile.” The description shows how supermundane the objects surrounding the tomb are.
The luxuriance of the objects is transmitted to the reader by different descriptive words. The words ‘golden, gilded, brightly, and treasures’ highlight the wealth of the tomb. Furthermore, the unusualness of the decorations is demonstrated by words such as “life-sized, gorgeous, fantastic, tall.’ The author uses many comparisons for easy imagination of the reader by adding the words ‘like’ and ‘shaped,’ for example, “cat-shaped,” and “like guards.”
