‘Ah, E! Very nice to see you. Last time I saw you you had your nose in the air and wouldn’t look at me. Walked right by me without a hello.’ Later she brings this up. ‘Did I really do that?’ ‘Yes. You do that a lot of the time to a lot of people. In fact, you are rude to most people who are friendly and kind to you.’ She whimpers that she is not well. She doesn’t know what she is doing. ‘I know you’re not well. Yes. But does it excuse you entirely from being rude to everyone? I’m amazed Tiggy Winkle dares to come into our house any more now that you’re there. I don’t know why you have to be so contemptuous of everyone. It’s not all about you, you know. You can be kind to other people because they might appreciate it.’ This is heart felt. She changes the subject.
