Monologue Mania Day #886  Masked by Janet S. Tiger (c) July 17,  2016

         (The actor comes out with a mask and outfit that includes gloves.  Looks at the audience and shakes head, very annoyed)

Please shut off that spotlight!  I told you- This is just what I was afraid of....I do not want the lights on me!.....I am the last!  Not the last ‘what’ but ...the last ‘who’...that's who I am!

You do not know my name, and that is the way it will stay.  I have only come on this show to let all on this planet know that I do not appreciate being hunted like an animal....because I am the only person who does not.....want my 15 minutes of fame.

I just want to be....left alone.  That is why my parents refused to name me, nor to give me the ID numbers required......Life Security, Medical Identity, Origin Review.....not one moniker or numeral is mine!

I understand this obsession with knowing everything about everyone started in the last century, with a family known as the Dashing Car family.......originally they had a real name....Kardashian, but they switched it after 50 years when they decided to become even more visible.......and they can do that, because, in spite of all our attempts, it is still a free world!  So they can be in the spotlight....they can have my spotlight! 

And you, all of you, you can have my spotlight....because with the Internet,.. and the Google World Zapp, and the cameras imbedded in everyone from birth, we are all famous! Everyone is a star in their own video!  All the time!  EXCEPT FOR ME!

Just know.....when I go.....the joy of oblivion goes with me......all seen..... all known.....all gone the chance at......just

       (Turns to leave, stops, listens, laughs)

And no, I will not be signing any autographs!

        (Leaves to continue a life of desired obscurity)
