FC: Scout Finch
2: Hi. The name's Jean Louise Finch, but e'ryone calls me Scout. I don't like wearing dresses and I 'specially don't like bein' called a girl.
3: I am 6 years old and a res'dent of the fine town of Maycomb, Alabama. I live with my father, Atticus, my brother, Jem, and our cook, Calpurnia. My favorite thing to do is makin' up plays with Jem 'nd my friend Dill. I also like shootin' stuff with my air rifle, but Atticus is always tellin' me ne'er shoot at a mockingbird (or Miss Maudie's behind).
4: Ev'n though at times he annoys the heck outta me, Jem is the bestest friend I've got. He's a little ol'er than me, but we still get 'long jus' fine. He taught my fiance, Dill, how to swim cause he's real wise. I wouldn't know what to do all summer if it wasn't for Jem.
5: My dad Atticus is my hero. He's the best lawyer in Maycomb and he was once the sharpest shot too. People was makin' fun of me 'nd Jem 'cause Atticus was defending a black man, but I didn't pay them no attention. I think he's real brave, prob'ly the bravest man I know besides that Tom Robinson o'course.
6: One of my favorite things to do is roll down the hill in a big rubber tire, but I don't really like it anymore. Not after Jem pushed me just a lil' too hard 'nd I rolled right through the Radley's gate. I never been so sc'red in m' life.
7: The biggest shock of my young life came on Halloween night when Jem 'nd me were saved by the infamous Boo- I mean Arthur- Radley. Mr. Ewell tried to kill Jem 'nd me. I sure am glad B- Arthur was there to rescue us, but I do wish my ham costume could've been salvaged. I was mighty proud of it.
8: This here's my air rifle that I got for Christmas. Jem's got one jus' like it. Atticus wouldn't teach us how to shoot 'em, but we fig'rd it out eventually.We're just not allowed to shoot at people... or mockingbirds.
9: This is one of my dresses. I always had to wear it when Aunt Alexandra was around 'cause she was always tellin' me that my pants was unlady like. At tea one day, I told her that I had my pants on right under my dress. Well, her and her friends thought that was mighty funny, though 'm not real sure why.
10: "You're mighty dressed up, Miss Jean Louise," said Mrs. Maudie. "Where are your britches today?" I reply, "Under my dress" (Lee 307).
