Monologue Mania Day #1031 The Free Bag Lady by Janet S. Tiger (c) Dec. 9, 2016
                               The Free Bag Lady

                                       A monologue by Janet S. Tiger (c) Dec. 8, 2016   all rights reserved 

             (The actress enters with bags surrounding, holding bags, wearing bags on her arms, bags flying.....very much a bag lady!)

Freedom for the bags!  Oh, my bags!  All my bags!  I love you all!  The big, the small!  They won't give you out any more, because of the environment!  I love the environment!  I don't want to fight about the environment!  Who can argue with saving the planet?  Not me!  

 But I love you bags!

Please give my bags back!  Free!  Unencumbered by rules and regulations - FREE!  Please let me have as many bags as I want!  PLEASE!

I never throw them on the ground!  I never put them in storm drains!  I love my bags!  I use them in my garbage pails at home!  I revere them!  I use them for gifts!  I am a proud bag lady!

          (She collects the bags and hugs them to her, listens)

What?  I have thousands!  I've been saving bags since they threatened to cut off my supply!  I have whole closets for my bags!  They are more than a hobby, they are my friends!

        (Turns to leave, stops, listens)

The problem?  I can't remember them when I go into the store and so I have to buy more!


        (She exits to a place with free bags)
