How will I ever find the money to get Jim a nice Christmas gift?
Would you like to buy my hair?
I would love to buy so of your beautiful hair!
Sights Are Set!
I must have that watch chain for Jim!
Jim and Della are a young couple living in a run-down and bare city apartment. In the exposition of the story, we as readers learn that the conflict is that Della does not have enough money to buy Jim a nice gift.
The action rises when Della decides that she so badly wants Jim to have a nice gift, that she is willing to cut off her long luxurious locks and sell them.
Della has her sights set on buying Jim a beautiful chain fob for his antique precious watch. Immediately after she saw the watch, Della knew she had to buy the watch chain. It works out well that the money from cutting her hair is just enough for Jim's present.
