Piggy Princess

by D. M. Larson


from the play "Flowers in the Desert" by D. M. Larson ISBN-13: 978-1530169085


I've always loved taking care of animals. Horses, cats, dogs, and especially pigs. Momma Nell, one of my foster mothers, used to call me that, her little piggy. And I did look like a little piggy that's for sure. I was plumper than a Buddha doll.

Momma Nell used to dress me in pink too.  I love how she let me call her Momma.  

And pink still is my favorite color.  One time Momma bought me this most beautiful pink dress for a school dance.  It was all sparkly like pink diamonds.  Are there pink diamonds?  And the dress had these big old puffy shoulders like Cinderella. I felt like a princess for the whole ride there.  I shoulda just turned and gone home cause that was the best part... The boys at the dance said so many mean things to me... they laughed at me... I laughed too... I wanted them to see me laughing... like I wanted to be the joke... I decided piggies shouldn't try to be petunias.

(Smiles, then looks thoughtful and sad)

Momma Nell was the best foster mother I ever had until she got sick. Too sick for me to take care of anymore. I wish they woulda let me try a little longer.  I wanted to be there for her like she was for me.

(puts on a smile)

But I sure know how to take care of animals. That's what I love to do now. I'm like St. Francis of A-sissy.


And I would sure love to be a saint like Francis, then all this suffering would be worth while.
