For instance: in an attempt to make the yard more "interesting" her mother buys a goat and lets it eat its way randomly across the lawn, instead of mowing it. Her sister was such a "dish" as a child, with bright blue eyes and "hair the color of goldfish", that a neighbor child kept biting her. Finally, the biter's mother was forced to bite her, to show her what it was like! When Hildegarde finds out that she's a bit bowlegged, she wears a fringed tablecloth tied around her waist to go swimming, and nearly drowns in front of the boy she was trying to impress. ..."
