This is a good attempt to translate TMCM into contemporary circumstances. Abby wants to show Liz around her family's farm. Liz does not like the smell of the hog barn. Por k chop, green beans, and a biscuit does not appeal to Liz as dinner, though it is Abby's favorite. Liz likes pizza, pasta, tacos, burritos, and sushi, and Abby does not even know what those are like. Liz invites Abby to the city. A rushed and noisy dinner at an Italian restaurant in the city is unpleasant for Abby. When a car almost hits the two children in the city, Abby says that she wants to go home. Liz is surprised but says "I guess there are good things about both places." A telling of the traditional story follows along with questions for reflection and discussion.+
