           (The actor enters, dressed for the New Year, doing somersaults varied with cartwheels.  Stops right in the middle of the stage.  Smiles.)


            (Removes shoes and socks.  Turns another somersault)

Nine.  What a great year!

             (Cartwheel, then takes off jacket. )

Eight, seven six.....

             (Does three somersaults, takes off shirt)

Five, four, three......

             (Starts to do a cartwheel, removes pants, stops, now only in underwear)

Maybe I don't want the ball to drop this year.....maybe....I don't want to see it end.....

             (Does a half-hearted cartwheel)


              (Deep sigh, sits heavily)

Where do the years go?  I mean, just a minute ago, I was turning cartwheels, and now.....

              (Tries to stand, can't)


              (Turns to leave, looks back over shoulder, smiles, starts crawling like a baby, giggling, happy, removes a New Year's blower thingy and starts blowing it)

Happy New Year!

              (Exits......still blowing......and so does 2014.  May the New Year be a Happy, Healthy Year for all!)

I like your use of the word "thingy" every now and then.
