An excerpt …
(Meg’s from the city.)
Kim: Wanna play or somethin’?
Kim: The barn’s out back. Lots of fun stuff to do out there.
Meg: Play? In a barn? Play what?
Kim: I don’t know. Hay mow’s a lotta fun. You slide from nearly the top to all the way down to the tractors.
Meg: And why would I want to do a thing like that?
Kim: (shrugs) To get to the bottom, I guess. You ever ride a cow?
Meg: (a one-beat pause, then) You’re serious, aren’t you?
(Kim offers a number of ideas.)
Meg: (exploding) I don’t want to slide down your tractors, I don’t want see your pigs or your lambs or murder frogs. I’m doing this as a favor to my father and the sooner I can get it over with the better. I hate being here, I can’t wait to get back into our car and go home. I don’t want to play any of your farm girl games. I just want to sit here until it’s all over. Please! Just leave me alone!
Kim: (a very long pause, Kim’s feelings are hurt…but after a bit, the spunk returns) Ever wrestle a hog?
(They get at each other, then cool down.)
Kim: You are really weird, girl.
Meg: It runs in my family.
Kim: I believe it.
Meg: You’re sweet, Kim.
Kim: Don’t let it get out. It’ll ruin my reputation with the pigs. (a beat, then) Think we oughta go up to the house? Your Dad’ll be leavin’ pretty quick.
Meg: (smiles a comfortable smile) I don’t want to go.
Kim: You think I want you to hang around here? You can’t even ride a three-wheeler. You are one useless city girl. You can’t milk a cow or ride a goat, and I’ll bet you couldn’t buck a bale of hay if your life depended on it.
Meg: Yeh, but I’m cute.
