Monologue Mania Day # 395 by Janet S. Tiger Pi Day   March 14, 2015
                         First monologue in this play was Day # 308       

                                           Pi Day 
                                           (for About Love and Math in the Time of Chemistry) 
                                            A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © all rights reserved                                                                                    

              (The young man comes onstage - this time he has a circle made out of cardboard, he holds it up like at a concert)

This is a very special day......not only Albert Einstein's birthday, but it is Pi Day!  Do you know how important Pi Day is?  It is the representation, in calendar days, of the vitally important number 3.14159, which is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter, which is a constant!  And that all you need to calculate the entire universe, is Pi to 39 places!

             (Listens, turns over the circle and shows that there is a happy face on the other side)

Is this better?  Can I make you see how important these numbers are?  I know you have lots more to think about than numbers, and numbers make your head spin, but I love.....numbers......and I love....

            (Gets a little nervous about saying the word, so he holds the circle by his chest and thumps it)

And I love.......that we are going to get to work together......on this Academic Decathlon........and this may not be Valentine's Day, but I think that Valentine's Day is very over-rated and people should not be celebrating emotional stuff by buying a lot of things.......but for God's sake, this is Pi Day!  And without Pi, we wouldn't be here!


Is that all?  Well, actually, I wanted to ask you something.......would you like, I mean, um......(getting very flustered)....would you consider going out with me?

          (He leans in to listen to the answer)

Well, I was hoping we could go to get.....a piece of pie!

          (Lights down.  End of scene)
