Excuse me Sir, may I ask what you had for breakfast?
I believe the theme is to be happy and believe in yourself. Millicent realizes that her own freedom was more important than being popular
To join or not to? I would be popular, but I would lose my freedom...
Millicent's friend, Tracy, is really sad when she learns that Millicent was invited to join the sorority and she wasn't. This causes Millicent to rethink about the joining the sorority.
In order to join the sorority, Millicent must complete several small tasks. One of them is to ask everyone on the bus what they eat for breakfast. When she gets to an older man, he replies "Heather birds' eyebrows on toast". Millicent is caught off guard and wants to learn more about these mysterious birds.
I can't do it! I wont sacrifice my freedom just to be popular!
The type of conflict is man vs self because Millicent is battling herself in her head deciding wether she really wants to join the sorority. In the end, she decides not to, and in that point of the story the conflict is resolved.
After Millicent decides to not join the sorority, she will have to go upstairs and face all of the other recruits and the other girls that she will be turning down the offer. The other girls might take it as offensive, but I think that Millicent will be happy with her choice in the future.
The climax of the story is when Millicent is sitting in the basement, about to join the sorority. After much consideration, Millicent decides that she would rather be free to do what she wants, rather than being in the sorority.
