Part III, Chapter 16
- Home alone, Jeannette gets an unexpected visitor. No, not Joe Pesci.
- The visitor is a man from child welfare. Yeah, Joe Pesci would be more welcome.
- The man asks Jeannette a bunch of family-related questions. She says her mom is an artist and a teacher, and her dad is an "entrepreneur" (3.16.15).
- Thinking Yeah, right, the man says he'll be back to speak with the family.
- Jeannette tells Mom that child welfare stopped by and that the family is in danger of being broken apart.
- Mom paints a picture of a drowning woman, and says, "I'll get a job" (3.16.32). A job doing what? Being a lifeguard at the local pool?
