Lena begins this chapter by speaking about her mother and how she can predict everything through people’s actions. It then skips to when Lena’s mother went to visit her and ted’s house. She had nothing good to say about it nor did she ever have anything good to say about anything. Lena and Ted lived a happy life and never let money step in the way of their relationship until It all got too much for Lena. She got tired of having to record everything they bought, but to be completely truthful she didn’t know why she was getting mad at ted. It was something her mother once told her about if you don’t eat your rice you wont have a nice husband and she was questioning their relationship.
