    I understand. I found the paragraph. It says "Everything was going along just fine until Mama caught me cutting out the circle of tin with her scissors. I always swore she could find the biggest switches of any woman in the Ozarks. That time she overdid it. I was almost to the river before the stinging stopped." What stinging? What switches?

  • word meaning -

    What do you think Mama did to Billy?

  • word meaning -

    Hmm... Possibly hurt him?

  • word meaning -

    Yes. A switch is a large twig from a bush or tree that is used as a whip. Imagine how it would sting when it's hit across bare legs.

  • word meaning -

    Oh. Ow... Thanks sooooo much!!

  • word meaning -

    <g> You're very welcome.
