Story by participants in the "Seniors on Stage" at Cornell Hall. Story facilitated by Lillian Ribeiro.
This takes place on a farm. This was yesterday afternoon in the year 1212. It’s a chicken house. She is feeding chickens. Her name is Judy. Judy might be 15 years old or younger. Her best friend is with her, and a chicken and a duck. There is a dog and cat there too. The ducks name is Harry. The chicken’s name is “Cheet Cheet”. The cat’s name is “Kitty Cat” and “Rover the Dog”. They are all making their animal sounds. It smells bad. It smells like a farm. I don’t want to talk about how bad it smells. But if you clean it up everyday it doesn’t smell bad.
When she grows up she will become a nurse or a model, or a farmer’s wife because she knows how to cleanup. She dreams of being a nurse. She likes being there for people. She dreams of her daddy. Her daddy is sick. She dreams of being an animal doctor. A veterinarian.
Judy has a big family. Her mother, her sisters, and 3 brothers. Her family is working on a farm. Their work is never done. They give each other kisses and go to school. They grow up and are teenagers. They harvest their food. Their work never ends but they are very happy.
