I was initially designated the "illustrator" for this assignment, so instead I am choosing to be the "connector." In chapter 7, Klaus (the middle Baudelaire child) researches nuptual laws in their city all night long. He figures out Olaf's plan to inherit the family's fortune by marrying Violet and confronts Olaf with his evil scheme the next morning. "Have you ever been really proud of yourself for accomplishing a very difficult task? How did you feel? Did you want to show it off to everyone?" Klaus made the mistake of boasting his recently acquired knowledge on nuptual agreements to Count Olaf. "He was also proud of his hard work and accomplishment for 'cracking the puzzle.' He was very proud - just like you were. Have you ever let something slip you wish you hadn't said? How did you feel once you realize you've made a mistake, but it is to late to take back what you said? This is how Klaus felt when he realized that Count Olaf was not threatened by him and his detective skills." I have told people information I shouldn't have - and felt very remorseful afterwards. Just last week I ruined my friends surprise birthday party! Once I realized that she didn't know about the party, I felt very embarressed (and stupid!). How could I have told exactly the wrong person to tell, just like Klaus. In response to: Please describe your thoughts on this chapter from your literature circle role perspective.
