Amelia Bedelia walked toward town.
"Now what will I do? " she said.
She passed by the beauty shop. A sign said: LADY WANTED.
"Now let's see what's that about", said Amelia Bedelia.
She went into the beauty shop.
"Can I help you? " asked a lady.
"No, I came to help you", said Amelia Bedelia.
"Can you fix hair? " asked the lady.
"Oh yes", said Amelia Bedelia.
"I can do that".
"Then you can start now", said the lady.
"Mrs Hewes is waiting to have her hair pinned up".
"All right", said Amelia Bedelia. She looked all around.
"But I don't see any pins", she thought.
"It's a good thing I carry some with me", Amelia Bedelia opened her purse. Shetook out some pins. And Amelia Bedelia began to pin up Mrs Hewes' hair.
"What are you doing! " said Mrs Hewes.
"Pinning up your hair", said Amelia Bedelia.
"Did I stick you? "
"Help! " called Mrs Hewes.
The beauty shop lady came.
"Oh, no! " she said.
"What have you done? Go away right this minute".
"All right", said Amelia Bedelia. So Amelia Bedelia went on her way.
"Now why did she get so mad? " said Amelia Bedelia.
"I just did what she told me to do".
