Monologue Mania Day #1116 More Secrets by Janet S. Tiger (c) Mar. 4, 2017     
                                                 More Secrets
                                                            a monologue   by 
                                               by Janet S. Tiger (c) all rights reserved (c) 2017
        (Actor comes onstage, looks around furtively)

I have a secret.  It's a big one.  Only problem, I can't remember what it is.  It's a secret to me, from me.

And I have to not tell certain people, because they don't know the secret, because for them, it's still a secret.

We share that, since I don't know either.  Well, maybe I know, but not now.  I don't know now what I knew.

But it is a new secret, so I'm confused.  Because I can't recall what the secret is, I'm not sure who not to tell.  So many secrets, so little time!  Oh.....when I was younger, I loved secrets.  Something only I knew, so precious!  So special, like a gift to be shared only if you found the right person who also wouldn't tell the secret....just like you hadn't told.

But maybe, because I don't know what the secret is, I'll tell it by mistake, and then the other person will know but it won't be my fault!  You can see that, can't you?

I mean, maybe it's better if everyone knew the secret so I wouldn't have to try and remember who knows and who doesn't know!

NO!  I will not tell!  For just that reason!

         (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Maybe it's best everyone know, so that ....they can tell Uncle Kenny how much they love him......that shouldn't be a secret should it?

         (Exits to share the knowledge)
for my dear brother-in-law - now we all know, so we can pray for your speedy recovery!
