Peter's Physique

Peter’s physique represents his vanity. Throughout the story, Peter finds ways to insert the topic of his health and physique into many conversations. This presents Peter as egocentric and inauthentic, because it appears to be the case that he merely uses conversations as a means to boast his superior appearance.

The Popsicles

The popsicles represent innocence as it relates to family. Ice cream vendors in literature and narratives connote wholesomeness and innocence that comes with being a child. The ice cream vendor selling popsicles to Judy appears in the story after Peter suggests that he and Anna should abandon Judy for a couple of hours. This creates a disparity, because on one hand, the popsicles suggest that Judy, Peter, have a healthy familial relationship. On the other hand, Peter is trying to be free of Judy to spend time with Anna.
