         (A woman in a lab coat runs onstage, she is in a flurry of activity)

Yes, I know I told you I would explain, but can't you see how busy I am?  My nephew is leaving and I have so much to do!


(Very flustered)  Oh, all right!  I'll give you the very short technical explanation!  I mean it is very simple how an airplane stays in the air!  The way it stays in the air is....

          (She stops moving for a moment and stands tall)

It stays in the air because it's held up by .....a big, firm bubble of worry!


Well, of course that's not what they teach in science class!  Because they just give you a lot of mumbo jumbo and equations designed to make you feel stupid!  And you do!  But the truth is,,,,it's all just a roiling bubble of worry, and of course it works!  How do we know?  Simple!  It works because otherwise....and this is the only real proof - it works because otherwise.... all the planes would be falling down!

          (She turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Now you'll have to excuse nephew is leaving soon for Florida....on a plane!  So I must go....I have  a whole lot of worrying to do!

           (She a new flight of fancy)
