An excerpt …

(They are both new-born.)

Vachel: So … what do you think?

Rustal: About what?

Vachel: The future.

Rustal: I don’t know. I really haven’t had much time to think about it.

Vachel: I know. I just got here myself.

Rustal: Natural?

Vachel: Induced.

Rustal: Oh. Hope you didn’t mind.

Vachel: I was ready. Might as well get on with it.

Rustal: Is this it?

Vachel: What?

Rustal: Is this all there is to it? You’re born then you sit here?

Vachel: No, there’s a bit more … childhood, adolescence, marriage. Then you pay taxes, go to Disney World and die.  It’s a pretty good gig.

(There are people watching at the nursery window.)

Vachel: Oh … she’s called a sister. She has no desire to bring you home. You’re all her parents have talked about for the past nine months and she’s sick and tired of you already.

Rustal: That doesn’t seem fair.

Vachel: Sisters don’t do “fair.”

Rustal: So, they all seem to fall into two groups: male and female. Which am I?

Vachel: I have no idea.

Rustal: How about you?

Vachel: I hadn’t really thought about it. It won’t be important for another twelve years or so.

Rustal: Is there a big difference? I mean between being a boy or a girl?

Vachel: Oh, it used to be huge. Power … voting rights … bigger restrooms. Things have pretty much evened out in the last fifty years. You got a preference?

Rustal: I don’t know. Men don’t look as colorful.
