Every day after work Paul took his muddy boots off on the steps of the front porch. Alice would have a fit if the boots made it so far as the welcome mat. He then took off his dusty overalls and threw them into a plastic garbage bag; Alice left a new garbage bag tied to the porch railing for him every morning. On his way in the house, he dropped the garbage bag off at the washing machine and went straight up the stairs to the shower as he was instructed. He would eat after he was “presentable,” as Alice had often said.

In this text I can infer that Paul is a messy boy who was yelled at by his sister or mother to clean himself up. I can also infer that Paul made the mistake to take his muddy boots in the home many times because he said Alice would make a fit if "the boots made it so far as the welcome mat".

I quickly packed my suitcase. I tossed in a change of clothes, a toothbrush, and a hairbrush. Glancing at my watch, I zipped the suitcase and walked to the front door. After I shut the window blinds, I pulled a heavy coat from the closet.

In this text I could infer that the author is in a hurry and needs to go somewhere secretly such as a secret ally where the cops cant find her or the author could be a detective and needs to go investigate something in a hurry.

Hudson hurried out of the house so he wasn't late for work. He wore overalls and carried a toolbox with wrenches in it. He hopped in his truck and drove off. The sign on his truck said, “Pipe Masters.”
