                                           Cheat Code

             (The teenager runs onstage with a controller for a video game following the game all over - into the audience, back up to the stage.)

Come on!  Stay in the game!  Jeez!  I thought this would be easier, especially since I got the code.....

          (Jumps up, lands and rolls)

Why did I think I could win even with the code.......damn cheat code!  It's hard even with the code!

          (Plays furiously standing in one spot, then leaps and cheers!)

I did it!  I beat the game!  I won! 

          (Sits down heavily, still happy)

It was worth every penny!  Jeez......my whole allowance!  But I won, I succeeded.....no matter what they call me in gym class.....or at lunch....or....anywhere......they can't take this away!

         (Gets up, slower now, looks at the control, shakes head)

I guess I could play again, but.....maybe tomorrow.....

         (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

I just wish......I could get a cheat code.....for life......

         (Exits.  Don't we all.......)

Cheat codes for games are real -

Cheat codes for life.....still in the works....
