This wall belongs to the people of Taliaferro Street!
No thanks, girls, I brought my own dinner.
In The Restaurant
What do you have in all of your food?
The narrator and his cousin Lou come home to find a lady from New York painting on their childhood wall, where they carved the name Jimmy Lyons, a Vietnam soldier. The narrator claims that the painter lady and he were at war.
In a Paint Store
This'll show her not to paint on our wall
The Morris twins bring the lady some food after the narrator and Lou get back from school. The lady takes a look at the food their mother had prepared for them and declines, lying about how she brought her own dinner.
At The Wall
Finally, the lady gets hungry enough and goes to the narrator's mom's restaurant. Then, she bugs her about what ingredients are in the narrator's mom's food. Everyone in the restaurant anticipates the mom to yell at her, but instead, she respects the painter lady trying to eat healthily.
The narrator and Lou gather up all of their change to buy a can of spray paint to vandalize her artwork.
