Monologue Mania Day #819 Capitulation by Janet S. Tiger (c) May 11,  2016

                                 A monologue by Janet S. Tiger  (c) 2016 all rights reserved
       (A woman enters, she is a bit disheveled, but seems happy.)

Hello!  Hello! ......I just love the Senior Channel!  What fun!  What help!  What a load!

I have been here theoretically help those who are organizationally husband is one of those people....I love him dearly...married 25 years!  But he is not the most organized, and I have come to a is more than a realization, it is a genuine EPIPHANY!

Yes, I think there should be a whole show about EPHIPHANIES and mine can be the first!

You see I doesn't matter....none of it!  I have tried to be organized.....tried to get my hubby to be more organized, tried to get my family, friends.....the whole world! be more organized....but now I think ......I KNOW....IT'S TIME TO GIVE UP!

You heard me.....I don't care!  If the kleenexes are stacked up to the ceiling because you got a good deal, if the mail is cascading like Niagara Falls from ceiling to floor......if you cannot get a car in your garage.....if you have to sleep on floor because there's too much junk on the bed!  I DON'T GIVE A....

        (Hears something from the side, stops, smiles)

(Pretend calm)  I ....don't

In fact, I hereby relinquish all my rights to be called an organizer.....I give up all hope for my husband AND the human race........

        (Listens, shakes head)

Why?.........Because the virus has infected me......the aliens have made sure that I, too, am becoming messier by the is a slow virus......and those of us affected do not become zombies.....we just.....don't care if everything is in order anymore.......

       (She turns to leave, her arms pointing out in front of her like a sleepwalker, stops, looks back)

And please.....don't call........  Because....I QUIT!

         (She exits to freedom.....from an organized life)
