Jimmie decides he does not like being a lady!
“Just the thing!” he cried. “I’ll dress up and make believe to be a lady going calling.”
So he dressed up in his sister’s clothes and went for a walk as far as the meadow, where he plucked a handful of daisies.
“I don’t like being a lady,” said Jimmie, “for I can’t make any noise.”
So he ran back to the house and threw off his fine clothes.
“I’ll play soldier,” he said, “and beat my drum, and make lots of noise.
