The Search for Signs of Intelligent Life in the Universe
by Jane Wagner
Plymouth Theater, New York City, 1985
Main character : Trudy the bag lady
Location : A street corner in New York City
standing on the corner of "Walk, Don't Walk,"
waiting for these aliens from outer space to show up.
I call that crazy don't you. They're late as usual.
My space chums say they're learning so much about us.
They said to me, "Trudy, the human mind is so-o-o strange."
We think so different.
They find it hard to grasp some things that come easy to us,
because they simply don't have our frame of reference.
I show'em this can of Campbell's tomato soup.
"This is soup."
"And this is art."
Then I shuffle the two behind my back.
Now what is this?
I dread having to explain tartar sauce!
