Hazel admits that she has never seen the movie, to which Augustus invites Hazel over to his house to watch it. As they are waiting in the parking lot of the church, he pulls out a cigarette. Hazel gets upset until Augustus reveals to her that it is a metaphor. He never lights them, and thus they will not kill him. On the way to Augustus’ house, Hazel comments on how “...they have controls for people who can’t use their legs.” This leads to a discussion of how she got pulled out of school three years ago, while he is a sophomore at the local school.
She soon learns that her grandmother had washed them the night before, but they were still wet, and Mina fears she will not make it to Mass without wet sleeves. There is a mention of Father Angel not giving her Communion with bare shoulders. Mina is quite upset with her grandmother, the blind woman warns her “It’s a sacrilege to take Communion when one is angry”. This seems to make Mina move faster, and she is out the door soon after, without even washing her face. This is the first interaction where “God” is mentioned, along with a sense of guilt that the grandmother puts upon Mina, after Mina had put guilt onto the grandmother for washing the sleeves.
If I only knew where Bibi was” From these quotes, we can speculate that Calixta was really worried about her family. When Alcee came to Calixta’s house, nothing was happening; there was no scheme for meeting up for adultery because they were very stiff and polite at the beginning. “May I come and wait on your gallery till the storm is over, Calixta?” he asked. “Come’ long in, M’sieur Alcee.” (Chopin 100).

Dave came to the door and told my parents we were going out for ice cream. My mother knew better and flashed me a questioning look because I am lactose-intolerant and cannot eat ice cream. But I shrugged it off thinking that he just didn’t want to tell my parents that we were going to go talk about our respective relationship problems. We climbed into his white Jeep Cherokee and headed out of my neighborhood. I asked him, “Where are we going exactly?” And he said, “Down to the beach where it’s quiet and we can talk without anyone overhearing us.” This should have tipped me off.

The narrator tells a dynamic story of a woman casually having a late breakfast on her porch one Sunday morning, with a surprising absence of guilt for not going to church because of her admiration for the beautiful wildlife around her. The woman then daydreams a visit to Christ’s tomb and compares the value of Christian faith to nature’s ability to give one paradise.

So, Connie did not care about finding her grandmother, but cared about her reputation with her friends. So, another woman at the church had to look for her grandmother. After this, when her grandmother is found, Connie's grandmother is hurt and tells her "You made me feel like a zero, like a nothing." Then Constancia feels bad and has to talk to her grandmother. So going through the experience of losing her grandmother in a church, and then not even bothering to look for her, and then feeling bad afterwards has shaped Connie's values to not caring about the feelings of her grandmother to caring about what she says and does to her, and maybe it opened up her eyes to valuing all of her family member's and

My aunt and uncle who also live with her help her around and they go on hikes through large parks.
