Scout joins into the ladies' gossiping to only listen.
Scout brings a coffee pitcher to her aunt Alexandra and the other women of the neighborhood, but before she could leave her aunt told her to stay as what Scout believes to be "her campaign to teach me to be a lady".
While listening to their conversations, Scout became confused when the ladies asked her if she wanted to become a lawyer.
Through hard times of a death, or troubles with a family member Alexandra chooses best to be polite to the guests. Scout believes through this hard time that if her hand can be lady-like, so could she.
Scout: If Aunty could be a lady at a time like this, so could I.
