AUNT ALEXZANDRA- "Today was Sunday, and Aunt Alexzandra was positivly irritable on the Lord's day. I guess it was her Sunday corset . She was not fat, but solid, and she chose protective garments that drew up her bosom to giddy heights, pinched in her waist, flared out her rear, and managed to suggest that Aunt Alexzandra was once an hour-glass figure. From any angle, it was formidable." (pg128)

I actually think this is a very good picture for her! I definitely think that she is that uptight and stern and wants everything her way or no way. However, I don't think she probably will make Scout do chores instead of allowing her to go to the ball. I actually think she would make her go AND wear a dress :)!

Very true Captaincrunch! This picture does suit her well! I also do think that if a ball was in the story, Auntie would have made her go and wear a dress than do chores. I will tell you what! That is a pretty sweet deal. Who wouldn't want to go to a beautiful ball and wear a dress, instead of doing a butt load of chores! I mean I feel that way at least. Good post!

That is a perfect picture for Aunt Alexandra. I can't stand either one and I also agree in the thought that she would have made Scout go to the ball and were a dress of her choice; although I'm sure Scout would have made a case.

With the way that Aunt Alexandria is trying to make a lady out of a tomboy , I think that Alexandria would force Scout to go to any sort of ball just to put her on the spot. But I also think that Scout would find her own way to drive her Aunt crazy too! That's the way their aunt-niece relationship goes, I guess.
