Monologue Mania Day #1065 The Busy Bee (for Caregivers Anonymous) by Janet S. Tiger (c) Jan. 12, 2017

        This will be inserted into the play - not sure where yet

                                The Busy Bee
                             (for Caregivers Anonymous)
                                       A monologue   by Janet S. Tiger 
                                      © all rights reserved

          (Jeannie - the leader of Caregivers Anonymous - comes to the front and signals for everyone to listen)

JEANNIE -  Okay, we have had a request for a game, and it has been determined that we are going to play something we can all identify with - and possibly win!  Unlike all the other games in the world, this game is designed with caregivers in mind.  It is based on the concept of the Spelling Bee.....but there is no spelling involved because everyone here is too busy to worry about spelling....and that is the key word here......not spelling...but ...BUSY.....welcome one and all to THE BUSY BEE!

           (The others groan)

JEANNIE -  Come on now, be honest, can't we all win this game?  Who is the busiest?  It's kind of like survivor.....but it never ends!

           (Someone throws a paper at her)

JEANNIE -  How busy are you?  How many things can you do at the same time?  It's like juggling, but instead of plates, or balls...

CLARK -  I love to jiggle balls....

JEANNIE -  Clark!  Instead of juggling.... oranges......or running buzz saws.....we juggle something bigger and more scary....we juggle people!  This is the game they will never show on TV - this is the game that no one wants to play!  This is the game that where the last one standing is the most tired person, the person most in need of a break....the winner of this game is..... the BUSIEST BEE!  

             (She is bombarded with paper and the others make it clear they do not want to play)
