Duh! I'm the best designer in the world. Look what I have done with my living room!

I am the new owner of Hoo's on First. You know, the baseball show thingy.

The Mom Song
Passages that describes me
“What a lovely living room, so practically furnished,” Grace commented. “Our apartments are identical in layout, but mine looks so different. You must come see what I’ve done with it. I’m a decorator, you know. Three bedrooms do seem rather spacious for a single woman.” Raskin, The Westing Game, pg. 70.
Everybody says I'm so full of myself. Am I? I don't know. Maybe. But I am not. You'll see. This passages describes me as a wonderful decorator, duh! Now, children, read the next passage. You have to or else....
“Angela? Angela was born good, the perfect child. As for the other one, well...”
This passage shows that I am picky. Angela is the perfect child, because she does whatever I say. So obedient! The other one, well......Turtle Alice Tabitha-Ruth Wexler is a just like her father, jokes around and stuff. I wish she inherited MY gene. She would have been has perfect as Angela.
My Internal Conflict
Things I noticed about my family and I, which is part of my family
Flora Baumbach's hands were gentle, they never hurried or pulled a stray hair. Flora Baumbach loved her, she could tell. "I like when you call me Alice," Turtle said, "but I better not call you Mrs. Baumbach anymore, because of the bomb scare, you know." Calling her Flora would spoil everything. Maybe I could call you Mrs. Baba?" Raskin, The Westing Game, pg. 103.
There! All the proof you need. What proof? Oh, proof that Turtle has been warming up to that dressmaker that almost poked Angela while making her wedding dress.
I've be changing too. I'm now a restauranteur, not a housewife that sits there and do all the work. I also changed my name in the beggining of the book, when I came to Sunset Towers because of the Westing Games, as Otis Amber had said.
