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.
