Monologue Mania Day # 1260Tear Sculpture (for Caregivers Anonymous) by Janet S. Tiger (c) July 27, 2017

            (Actress enters with a box of kleenex.  She is, surprisingly enough, crying)

I'm sorry everyone, I just can't stop!  And yes, I know I have said many times that I will never cry, because crying is for babies - that's what my mother told me when I was three, and it stuck.....

           (She takes a kleenex and blows loudly)

But....but...... but I just started therapy....and something horrible has happened!  I can't stop crying!    I mean, the therapist just asked me about the things that were making me sad, and when I started telling her, I heard what it sounded like, I mean, all the sickness, and the problems and the toilet flooding in the middle of the ambulance arriving, and......and it sounded HORRIBLE!  And all of a sudden, it's like a floodgate opened, and I have been leaking from my eyes since yesterday!

          (Blows her nose again, collects the tissues into a ball)

So I have just decided I'm going to do several things - one, I'm investing in the Kleenex company....

          (She waves the box)

And two.....I'm artist!  And these will be my first creations!

         (She holds up the squashed together kleenexes to the crowd)

See. don't they look like modern art?  And I even have a name for them......tear sculptures.......

         (She sighs, goes to sit down, turns looks back)

Oh, my therapist?  She quit......

         (Lights down on some loud nose blowing - and the future for a new artist!)
