We read a story called, "The Secret Life of Walter Mitty" in which a man day dreams about a life opposite of the one he has. This is what we discovered:
In reality, WM is:
-simple-minded, miserable, basic, old, unrealistic, wannabe, wimpy, pacifist, weak-minded, daydreamer
In his dreams, WM is:
-innovative, adventurous, intimidating, manly, successful, intelligent, headstrong, dangerous, always in control, attractive, glorious
The author uses ORGANIZATION in this story to show us WM's character by CONTRASTing the reality with the daydream.
