"You are on fire, Melinda!"
*Bell rings, School echos with hundreds of students chatting and walking to class* I want to make a memorial for our turkey. Never has a bird been so tortured to provide such a lousy dinner. I dig the bones out of the trash and bring them to art class. -> (Melinda's thoughts) *Low angle Camera*
" I can do better..." -Mr.Freeman
~Melinda walks into art class~ *You can hear a muffled sound of the radio turned on in the room*
Mr.Freeman likes what he sees! "You are on fire, Melinda, I can see it in your eyes. You are caught up in the meaning, in the subjectivity of the effect of commercialism on this holiday. This is wonderful, wonderful! Be the bird. You are the bird. Sacrifice yourself to abandoned family values and canned yams!"-Mr.Freeman
At first, I want to glue the bones together in a heap like firewood -> (Melinda's thoughts)
"Get it?.... tree—firewood"
I take a step back. It isn't quite done. I rummage in the bin again and find a half-melted palm tree from a Lego set...I pop the head off a Barbie doll and set it inside the turkey's body... That feels right. -> (Melinda's thoughts) *Pans camera movement*
Ivy walks past and looks. She arches her left eyebrow and nods. I wave my hand and Mr.Freeman comes over to inspect. *Focus zoomes up on Ivy's reaction on Melinda's art*
