SATIRE #1 Notes

  1. Pick a social convention/ life event:
  • Turning 30 years old
  • subject: a step by step process of growing old
  1. Exaggerate
  • “your best years are behind you”
  • ” I have not died today, but maybe tomorrow” – saying how death is catching up on ones self, but has not been caught yet.
  • Thinks that their life is now over, the best part of their youth is gone
    3. Understate:
  • “never ask a lady her age.” – describing oneself as extremely old, while in reality still being quite youthful
  • Are expected to be an adult now, face certain social requirements that means they “must” become more formal
  • lessons they have learned to now pass on
