Monologue Mania Day #994 Stretched by Janet S. Tiger (c) Nov. 2, 2016

         (The actress is stringy haired and wild-eyed, at the end of her rope.  She is shaking her head)

Stretched.  I feel completely stretched.  Like there is nothing left to stretch and the whole elastic is about to just bounce back, and you tell me you can't do this one little thing I'm asking you?
I mean, we're talking small.  We're talking less than taking out the garbage, we're talking about the very simple......THROWING OUT AN APPLE CORE WHEN IT IS DONE!

You say that you can't .....remember!  That YOU can't stretch like me.....well, here's something to think about....

        (After a wild search through clothing, pulls a clipping from a pocket and reads)

Listen to this.......It says here....'Your DNA stretches out and every cell nucleus in your body is packed with 6 feet of DNA and if you uncoiled all of the DNA from all of the cells in your body and tied the strands together, it would stretch.....10 BILLION MILES, from the Earth...TO PLUTO AND BACK!

So if our DNA can stretch that far, you can stretch your ass out of that chair to get up and put that apple core in the garbage!

          (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Of course that assumes you have human DNA......

          (Exits laughing while taking the paper and throwing it at the audience.)
This is actually true about DNA -

and unfortunately, it is also true about some humans who do not put garbage into the pail!
