Art of persuasion
when i was younger i learned that i was going to get in trouble a lot so i had to become a master in the art of persuasion. one incedent that really tested my skills occured when i was about 8. my mom told me to watch after my sister while she walked to my grandma's house. i didnt want to so i went outside and played with my friends. after about 30 minutes mom came back and was not happy. the look on her face let me know i was in trouble. i begged for one chance to explain. i put on crocidile tears and told her that my school teacher told me to ealk away when people bothered me to avoid getting in trouble. i explained how my sister had annoyed me til i could not ake anymore so i went outside to relax. luckily for me she believed my little tears. i got off! i was so relieved. just as haemon tried to persuade his father to save antigone from a horrible death, i was succesful.
