Swim Caps - I hated these. 7th grade first hour gym + swimming + swim caps (couldn't hear with them on) + couldn't wear my glasses + hideous "swimsuits" provided by school = deaf and blind 12 yr old girl with soaking cotton swimsuit sagging to her knees and rubber flower growing from her head. Pitiful. Then trying to "redo" myself for rest of school day. Traumatic. :)
Symbolism-Opposites is important in the book becaise Stella and Blanche can act like complete opposites. Blanche can't believe how Stella lives in such an awfal apartment, and Stella is happy with the way she lives.
