Monologue Mania Day# 358 by Janet S. Tiger  Out of Time Feb. 5, 2015

             (A person is seen waving their hands at the audience)

Hello, how are you?  So good to see you! 

            (Takes out a pocketwatch, looks at it)

We have a few moments.  How long…exactly?  That long a minute is, depends on which side of the bathroom door you're on!

Who am I?   A bit of a mystery, I think……

See if you can guess…..

I have no friends, and no one can beat me. 

I am a great teacher, even though I kill all my pupils……

You use me, abuse me, you waste me, you regard me as the enemy.....yet I do not care.  You try, say you have killed me, but I never stop.  See these hands?  

          (Waves them)

You can't turn them back!  And no matter what Einstein said - you can't slow them down!

Who am I? 

           (Looks at watch again)

Time's up for guessing.....

          (Turns to exit, stops, looks back)

Because...I am time......

       (Waves hands, then – just, gone)


I am almost at the end of a year of these monologues…time is short……
