Starts off with a flashback to a week ago when the initiation was occuring at Betsy Johnson's house, and they crack an egg on her while blind folded.
A Rude Awakening
Come on, you stupid gopher! Don't even bother smiling either!
She's sooooooo mean!!!
Millicent speaks with Tracey about the sorority that she wants to join, Tracey is scared that Millicent will forget about her for the other sorority girls, and this shows that Tracey cares about the friendship and realizes the sorority might not be a good idea. This is the exposition.
Millicent meets with Louisa, a member of the sorority, about the invitation process. Laura tells Millicent how her best friend got cut by the blackball process. Louisa choses Bev as Millicent's "big sister". Louisa gives advice on how to handle Bev, telling her to not be happy and to not show smile.
Should I give up my best friend and my personality to fit in? Should I quit?
I am going to quit. I can't sacrifice my uniqueness for this.
Millicent arrives at Bev's house to meet her, and she immediately starts being rude, calling Millicent a "gopher," and telling her she can't smile or be happy. She then tells her that as part of the initiation process, she must go on a bus and ask people what they ate for breakfast as a test of loyalty.
This isn't going to work out.
Millicent proceeds with the task, and comes across a man who when asked what he had for breakfast, replies with "Heather birds eyebrows on toast!" Millicent loves his response because she loves the man's uniqueness, which makes her question if she wants to be like everyone else, or if she wants to be unique and herself, like the man. This is the conflict she faces, and the climax of the story.
Like I used to be....
He's very unique!
Millicent is at Betsy's house for the initiation and starts to regret going through the process of being in the sorority. She thinks about the Heather Birds, and how unique they were to the regular plain birds. The story doesn't say that she officially quits but hints at it. The theme is to be yourself. This is also the resolution.
