        (Actor enters, annoyed)

That, that, that, that, that!

I had a teacher who made me take out every 'that' in essays I wrote!  She hated the word 'that' because she said it was (says it with spite)  ....lazy to use 'that' - you need to work hard  and find a better way....

well, I just won a prize for writing and I want to say---

THAT...THAT.....THAT......I think you're wrong!  That is a perfectly good word and I love THAT I use it..

 There, I feel better, Mrs. Ridgidkowsky!
          (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Take that!
