Storyboard Text

  • Direct characterization the first time Janie saw Tea Cake in the store
  • Picnic 
  • Tea cake expresses his feelings using direct characterization
  • When Janie first saw Tea Cake, he was at the store to buy a pack of cigarettes.  She described all his good points as a tall man with full lazy eyes with curly lashes, the lean, over-padded shoulders, and narrow waist.
  • After days go by, Tea Cake told Janie he liked her  and she doesn't believe he can like someone that much older than him. He then asked her to go to the picnic with him trying to prove that he likes her.
  • People are telling Janie that he uses females for money and she should watch out for him but he says to Janie "You got de keys to the kingdom"(109) meaning he could possibly feel differently about her.
