Crook's Diary Entry Of mice and Men

Extracts from this document...


My Personal Diary 25THNovember 2008 CROOKS Oh god. So much happened today; I don't remember the last time I had so much to deal with in one night. I just sittin' around, workin' in my room, enjoying the peace and quite of the night when I heard someone at the door. It was Lennie, the new big guy, askin' about his damn pups. What does he think he's doing? Disturbing me from my daily routines. But I was feelin' pretty lonely at the time, so I let him in. He came in and started talkin' about his stupid rabbits and how he's going to have a ranch of his own with George, his small friend. Ha! What is this? Some sortta of joke? They don't even have the money for it! Gosh he's such an idiot, coming to someone like me at night and just yaking 'bout how he's going to accomplish is dream and pet rabbits. ...read more.


Images of what I can accomplish flushed into my mind, The thought of having to deal with less of what I deal with now is just exhilarating! When Candy talked about having their own land and living without the worry of losing a place to live, food to eat, and actually owning property, my heart soared, that would really be a great idea, my life really could change! I can't stop thinking about it, how Lennie and George are so close to achieving their goal, mine might be possible too! I could have if I had my own land, I might earn more than what I earn now, even raise a family, I could be a dad and ... so much possibilities. Curley's wife appeared at my front door, the one that has tons of makeup on her face, which brought us three men to shock, I don't remember the last time this room was so crowded! ...read more.


I totally forgot about myself and how these white people treat me, how could I live with them, we are from different worlds, we cannot live together in peace, it will never happen. Good thing I told Lennie that I have changed my mind to being part of their land, god knows what might happen if I really went to start a new life with them! Tonight was such a strange night, how could everyone be suddenly off guard and talked to me like I was somebody to them, I haven't had company for a very long time and I've really missed it a lot. I really want someone to talk to ,to be able to listen to me talk, I really believe that being alone for such a long time would really drive me crazy somehow. The yearning I have for a companion is driving me close to being mad! But I will not forget about my dignity and who I am as a black person. ...read more.
