bare stage, sounds of hammers, saws off stage

Veronica, screams: Ouch! . . Now that smarts!

Martha and Julie come running on stage, worried

Martha: Where are you Veronica, are you OK?

Veronica moans off stage

Julie: Veronica, where are you? . . What happened?

Veronica comes on stage moaning, holding her head with one hand and her behind with the other, Julie and Marsha rush to her

Julie: Are you OK Veronica?

Veronica: Does it look like I am OK? . . Half dead here is what!

Marsha: What happened to your head? . . And to your . . .

Veronica: I was putting up the soffit under the eaves and the ladder slipped and I fell, hit my head and my . . . pride.

Marsha: What were you using the ladder for? . . I thought we all agreed that we would use the scaffolding for all those jobs above our heads.

Veronica: Do you have any idea what a pain it is moving that scaffolding every few feet? . .
(Veronica moans louder, grabs her head)
That hurts like crazy!

Julie: You say it is a pain moving the scaffolding . . seems to me you’ve got even more pain from not using the scaffolding!

Marsha: And what about your hard hat, where is it?

Veronica: I am not about to wreck my new $60 hair style with a clunky old hard hat!
