          (Young woman, dressed punk, tatoos, wildly colored hair)

I just love the look on your face when I do something wild.  Like when I cut off my hair and you freaked!

Or when I painted my nails with skulls, oh, boy, that was fantastic!  You were always so proper, so eveything has to be in place, it made my day to figure out some way to drive you nuts!  

Purple hair, running away with that guy I just met, oh, that was classic.  You shoulda been an actress, Mom, because you got such an expressive face......

       (She illustrates)

Yeah, it is worth all the pain, like when I slashed my leg and the blood was dripping all over your nice white carpet......just like a movie scene.  

      (Makes a horrified face)

And you cried right on cue when the ambulance came..And then when I took the pills....

       (Throws up her arms and makes another face)

But all I wanted .......was to see your face when you found me dead.  That's all I really wanted. 

       (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

That's why I'm waiting - I'm afraid, maybe I won't get to see it........I would hate to, you know, and then...not get what I wanted.....

       (She leaves, but does not truly exit - we hope)
