        (Younger girl comes on, wearing shorts, a summery top.   She is very down, slouching)
I knew it.  Always the problem with the summer.  A problem that can never be solved.  Not like the problem about what music to listen to.....and definitely not like the problem where you can't figure out what to wear to the beach. 
And not the problem of which guy you met at the beach you should go out with......or what to tell your parents when you get home real late.....because your parents never understand anything anyhow!
         (She sits down and grabs her knees)
No, this is a much bigger problem......a problem that happens EVERY summer......
         (She rolls around and lies flat)
A serious conundrum....ooh, I still like that word....ever since I learned it from Mrs. Rodriguez in the fourth grade I have loved that word!.......a distressing and horrifying unsolvable problem....worse than anything in math!
         (She jumps up and whirls around)
You mean you don't realize?  Of course you don''re getting old like all the others!  The problem with that
        (She jumps and shakes her whole body)
It has to end!!!!!!
         (She turns to leave, stops, looks back)
And then there's school......Now what should I wear to school on the first day?  Now THAT'S a conundrum!
         (She exits to another loooooong year in class.  Have fun students!)
