Wanda is a cheerleader and plays guitar. She is kind of old . . . well, she is between 15 and 29. It’s the first part of the morning and it’s sunny. She is exercising and practicing her cheers for the basketball team at Lake Park in Milwaukee and at her home. “Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!” There is a basketball court and they are playing in a game. Wanda is holding a scarf above her head because it’s a girl and they just left the games and basketball. She’s cheering and acting like a cheerleader. Wanda and her friends are at the park and they are trying to stay out of the sun. Her friends are off playing tennis. There are a lot of trees, too. How does she find the time to play? Where does she have a place to live? On her porch, in her porch, in her house. She’s not just a girl: she is a woman. Her outfit is out of proportion. It’s a two-piece and it’s too short because there is exposure. Wanda could be wearing the boxer seats like the guys, shorts. And she has a whistle around her neck because she thinks she is on to it. She uses the whistle for signals and an outfit. Wanda’s expression is kind of sad because she didn’t like her experiences in life. She wants a whole lot more but she can’t reach it. Wanda wants sports, same kind like the boys, the system that they have. Like equality. Wanda also wants a cottage and marriage. She is looking solid; she looks like nothing because there is nothing there. Wanda doesn’t have enough to cover her. That’s the first thing you gonna do, get wound up in appearance. There is not much there. There is a whole lot that can be done, but can’t be done. That’s why it gets stuck behind. Wanda also plays guitar at a concert. The audience is young adults. I have no instinct of her guitar playing. Her boyfriend, Leroy, goes back to school. He is there for kids, teaching them how to be in the classroom. Wanda and Leroy live together and I think they will get married. Kids? So they say . . . I’ve never seen her with a newborn baby.
