I Remember driving with my mother and brother to my friend’s house to pick her up. Arriving at the house I saw a thin, sick little kitten. But she had spunk. Looking at her, I knew what we were going to be best friends. Before bringing her to the vet I decided that her name should be Sassy, because whenever she looks at anyone she looks like she has an attitude.
Achieving the goal of waking her up, I turned around to leave the room when she said, “I crashed the car.” My first thought was exactly what, “what did you say?” Pulling her face into the mattress she muffled and said, “I snuck out and accidentally crashed the car and left it there.” It sounded too good to be true and immediately I checked out the garage. Like exactly what Nicole said the car wasn 't there and that was when panic started to set in. Crying out to mom I cried, “the car isn 't here!” Behind the door of her closet, I heard my mother ask if I was joking.

As the Caterpillar teaches Alice how to master the physical changes she is going through, so the Cat teaches her how to fit into this world on the next level–social, i.e. on the level of behaving in a socially acceptable manner. The Cheshire Cat indicates to Alice how many rules, if they come into question, prove irrational and even crazy, since they are not in accordance with the nature. A very good example of this is a tie; social norms stipulate that a tie should be worn in all formal occasions, while its practical use is completely missing. The Cheshire Cat states that, “I laugh when I’m sad, and I cry when I’m happy,” (Carroll 19), which makes it “mad”, but in fact that kind of behavior is authentic and normal for it.
It was like we were wearing the same dress to the prom. Dorothy thought her landing here was fate—that it made her special. Another girl from Kansas meant that it was just a regular occurrence and that she wasn’t special at all. Or—worse—that I was here to take her place.
