Monologue Mania Day # 1229 Chocolate Pudding Day by Janet S. Tiger (c) June 26, 2017 
                                               Chocolate Pudding Day
                                              a monologue by Janet S. Tiger

        (Carrying a book and a plastic container, the actor enters.  Okay, maybe the writer)

Here are two items most people would consider to be disparate, completely unrelated.  This....

        (Holds up the book)

Is one of my all time favorite books - GONE WITH THE WIND....and something I also love...

        (Holds up the plastic container)

A nice portion of chocolate pudding.

Why do I put them together?  Because today is a special day....Chocolate Pudding Day!

How could that possibly relate to Gone With The Wind ?

Think for a's really very obvious.

I'll give you a clue.....

         (Opens the container and takes a spoonful of the pudding)


         (Opens the book)

And now........

         (Starts to read, stops, looks up)

It took Margaret Mitchell seven years to write this book.  It took me seven minutes to write this monologue, which is now over....because I cannot think of anything when I am eating pudding and reading Gone With the Wind.

          (As lights dim, the writer is eating the chocolate pudding and reading the book.  On this first week of summer, please consider doing the same!)

Today really IS Chocolate Pudding Day!  Enjoy!
