Her thoughts hold a more realistic view of life and human behavior. She sees the pains and sorrows that life truly is constructed of. Claudia feels that she has missed out on so many opportunities and is not included the way others are. Her strong character generates a feeling of both isolation and separation, but, in reality, she tastes life more closely than most people are able to in a lifetime.

Beatrice, the ‘peacemaker’, tries to stop any bad things from taking place and diverts the conversation, ‘Your wife is gettin’ the money alright, Marco,’ by butting in. We already know that there is tension in the household before this because Eddie says to Catherine, ‘You’re walking wavy’, which shows that he is very protective over her. You can tell that Catherine really wants to please him because she asks him, ‘What do you want me to do?’ and you can also tell that he treats her like a child and she takes it, which makes her act like it even more. You know that Eddie is not playing his role as a husband properly because Beatrice says to him ‘When am I gonna be your wife again?’ That shows Eddie is not paying much attention to his wife’s needs and his mind is elsewhere. That comment shows that there is tension between husband and wife, because obviously a man would not like to be asked that by his own wife.
Clearly one of the main themes evident in this short story, the battle with her identity and gender is quickly made apparent. The narrator is a young girl who appreciates, respects and holds her father’s authority in high regard, while she looks down on her mother’s weakness. This weakness stems from the fact that her father dominates her mother. Her views toward her mother’s femininity stem from her own insecurities about becoming a woman, and thus they tend to be indifferent in nature. She does not think that women are bad people, but does think that they have ulterior intentions.
