Storyline

Bobbie Jo meets a Jack Kerouac wannabe named Alan Landman, a poet from New York City. Despite Bobbie Jo liking him in every respect, he dismisses her way of life, where he sees questions like "how do you do?" as only social niceties which have no basis in what is real and true. Bobbie Jo wants to prove him wrong while deep down she wants to find out for herself if Alan is really right about how meaningless her conventional life is. After meeting Bobbie Jo's family, his impression is exactly as he thought it would be. Similarly, their impression of Alan is equally as dismal. Bobbie Jo, on the other hand, is falling in love with Alan, or at least what Alan represents. Alan vows to send for Bobbie Jo eventually, which Kate and Uncle Joe know is a crock, but even at that they know that Bobbie Jo will always see Alan in a romantic light. Kate has to figure out a way to make Bobbie Jo come to the conclusion on her own that Alan and his life do not deserve to be romanticized. Written by Huggo
