Monologue Mania Day #1141 Everything (for Caregivers Anonymous) by Janet S. Tiger (c) Mar. 29, 2017                             
                                           A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © all rights reserved 2014

              (Woman stands and looks at the others in the group)

Who here has a 'To Do' list?

              (Everyone raises hands)

And who here has a list that has items from years ago still on the list?

              (Everyone laughs and raises hands)

Well, I have figured out something that has saved me a lot of time -  wanna see my list?

              (Others hoot and holler -'Show us your list!  'woo hoo!'  She holds up a paper that is folded)

Let me explain - one day I was about to write my daily list and I sat for a moment and realized what I had to do......I had to do...lots of things......for my children, for my husband, for my parents, for my job, and I looked at my old lists, with all the items undone, and I almost threw up, and then I figured, I'd do what Oprah recommends - simplify!

And so I's my new, very accurate, very simple - To Do list------

            (She opens the paper and shows it - the others start laughing - only one word on the list)

That's right - I have to do - EVERYTHING!

And the great part of this list - it's the same every day, so I save time having to make a new list!

           (She sits to applause - the truth is freeing!)
