  I need more time!  When I was a child, I remember time was this giant, slow-moving thing - it took forever to get to the end of a day in school, let alone to the weekend!  To get to a birthday, forget it!   And let's not talk about Christmas......But then something happened as I got older, it's as if someone hit the fast forward button.....and here I am, too old to appreciate all the time I wasted when I was young!

      (Waves arms)

I have all these clocks and watches, and I was told by the government and the scientists and all the powers that be that......there was supposed to extra second!  On the 30th of June!  And I was looking forward to this so much!  It made me giddy to think of everything I could do with that extra second and now I can't find it! 

Where did it go?  Did they give it to me?  I was watching so carefully!

I don't have that much left, I can't afford to lose even one second! Has anyone in the audience seen - where did my time go!

          (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

And I can't find my car keys, either!

          (Exits. Time for another second)
