FC: Calpurnia's Scrapbook
1: I strongly believe that it is important for people to be kind to others who have done them no harm. I was raised to believe that you are never to kill a mockingbird. | My name is Calpurnia. I work for Atticus Finch and his family. I am the family cook and also the caretaker of the two children when Atticus is at work. I am a weekly church-goer.
2: Scout Finch, a child of Atticus, is an important person in my life. She seldom accompanies me in the kitchen, but when she does, I greatly enjoy her presence. Occasionally I feel I am to hard on the poor girl, but down the long road I feel she will turn out alright.
3: Once, I took Jem and Scout to my church with me. All the folks in my congregation are black, but I feel that most of 'em accepted the young ones. I sensed that Jem and Scout recognized the service being different than their own, but I believe they enjoyed it, nevertheless.
4: One of my favorite things to make is crackling bread. I make this special snack only for important occasions, or for Scout whenever she's feelin' down. I have a secret recipe and add my own extraordinary ingredient: bacon.
5: "Don't matter who they are, anybody that sets foot in this house's yo' comp'ny, and don't you let me catch you remarkin' on their ways like you was so high and mighty" (Lee 27).
