       Life Lesson # 269   Do Not Walk Away From the Grilled Cheese!

         (Actor enters with.....a frying pan)

See this?  Of course you do!  I'm using this as a visual - now watch.....

         (Puts the frying pan on the table - or chair - or floor - as long as it is visible)

Now let's pretend you are going to make a grilled cheese sandwich......I hear some wiseguys saying  something, no, I am not going to make a sandwich, but since you prefer another type of pretend, let's pretend you are going to learn something......better?

Well, here's what I have learned about ....grilled cheese my pretend world.....

        (Goes to the pan and waves hand over it)

I have put in the butter and bread and cheese......and I have started to make what will hopefully become a hot, gooey,delicious grilled cheese sandwich.....


It's starting to heat up......can you smell the aroma?  It's kind of like..... when you meet someone, and everything starts to melt together just right......

But here's the thing.....if you turn away............

      (Walks away from the pan)

And I don't care what your moment is........if it's one minute or two minutes.....or if you go out of town for  maybe a week or two.....or a month......or one second!  The person.... meets someone else, and the bread sticks and everything crashes and burns and ...... it's!  If you turn your back on a grilled cheese is too late......

      (Takes a piece of blackened paper from pocket)

So don't tell me I didn't warn you!   How many sandwiches have to get thrown in the garbage!?
 PAY ATTENTION! Do Not Walk Away From the Grilled Cheese!

       (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

How many times do you wanna get burned?

       (Exits to a better grilled cheese sandwich relationship)
