The girl’s name is Patsy Johnson and she’s waiting with her chicken (named Chick) at the barn for her mother to come home. Her mother, Betty, is downtown shopping. Her father, John, is around the farm somewhere. He lives in the barn and comes out every once in awhile. Patsy has two brothers and a sister as well, but they’re all in the house.
Patsy and Chick are talking while they wait and Chick said to Patsy “Go find your mother!”
Patsy feels like a country girl. But she also feels hurt, because something was taken away from her. Chick feels hurt too, because all the chicken food has been taken away, as well.
Next, Patsy will close the barn door so that Chick doesn’t escape. Then she’ll go to the bathroom. When her mother gets back, she’ll change Patsy’s diaper. She likes to do that.
