Monologue Mania Day # 1314 Signs of the Times by Janet S. Tiger (c) Sept. 19, 2017 

       Not sure where this will go, but it will be part of something bigger.

       (This is a man but not so young.  He is strong, and he knows it, folds his arms as he looks around, inspecting the wall.  He has a strong Brooklyn accent)

Ya got a good wall here for a sign.  Sturdy, good places to nail, good angles to view, and a great location.  They say real estate is location, location, location, but ya know, that's even more true about signs.  If ya got a sign in a closet, no good.

         (Listens, nods)

Yeah, you seen my work all over this borough, especially Fulton and Atlantic, all over Schenectady, that's my work!  You can see it for miles!

I learned makin' signs from my old man, I like to do it.....yeah, I do those fancy signs, my kids do those with the electronics.....that's not for me.  Sign of the times, they say, well, my signs are the sign of the times!  Paint, that's my way, still, it will be till the day I die - ain't never gonna retire!


Yeah, I imagine you're right, because my dad told me his dad told him......all the way back, our family was the first sign painters in the Garden of Eden......Sure, we answered to the big guy, God.....

         (Turns to leave, stops, looks back, smiles, imitates a big sign)

Don't eat the apples!
