Monologue Mania Day #464 Where it Goes by Janet S. Tiger  May 22, 2015
                                                Where it Goes
                               A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © all rights reserved  2015                                                                             

            (Onstage drifts the actor, in no apparent rush, smiling, without a care in the world)

Hello, I am so happy to see you!  I love being me!  I have the best job in the world!  What do you mean, you don't understand where you are?

You asked for it, with your incessant questions, your constant complaints, I'm surprised you have questions!  I'll give you a clue........see over there.....

            (Points into the distance)

That is the valley of wasted......and over there is very misty......misty water colored memories of course!

           (Lifts a bottle from a pocket)

And of course, this is the bottle......where some is kept.

          (Smiles and hums a bit of  'If I could keep time in a bottle' then waltzes  to another side of the stage)

Ooh, the beautiful clothing over there is .......all in a timely fashion...... 

      (Head falls, sighs deeply)

But beyond is the graveyard......where it has been killed....

Guessed yet?

Yes, you have come to the land of asked for it, you got it!

That's why I am in no rush - ever!  Because there is always plenty of time here, because this is where time goes....after it has been wasted, and killed, and lost and misspent....piles and piles of it here....the sands of time......and I, you may have figured out.... I am the timekeeper....

          (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

And, of course my favorite....time flies like an arrow......fruit flies like a banana!

           (Skips offstage leisurely......where did the time go from this last year?)
