Storyboard Text

  • Tomorrow would be Christmas Day, and she(Della) had only $1.87 with which to buy Jim a present.
  • It did not exactly beggar description, but it certainly had that word on the lookout for the mendicancy squad
  • Pennies saved one and two at a time by bulldozing the grocer and the vegetable man and the butcher until ones cheek burned with the silent imputation of parsimony that such close dealing implied.
  • How this example relates to conflict is that tomorrow would be Christmas Day and Della only has $1.87 and she still has to buy Jim a Christmas present.
  • How this example relates to conflict is Della's family is poor and they kinda beg for stuff to make a living. If Della hadn't been poor, then she would have had the money to buy Jim a present and wouldn't have had to cut her hair.
  • How this example relates to conflict is again, Della's family is poor and they try to do anything just to make some money. Also Della was talking about the vegetable and butcher man and how unwilling they are to spend money.
