Taylor isn't happy about the news, prompting Lou Ann to remark that Taylor simply doesn't like men.This chapter also develops the idea that Taylor has little use for men, as she rejects the idea that Harland Elleston might fulfill some sort of need of her mother. Lou Ann accurately appraises Taylor's opinion of men (as if they were put on the earth simply so someone could use the urinals), but even as she does so, Taylor begins to branch out from this viewpoint. The impetus for this change is, not surprisingly, Estevan.
