Monologue Mania Day # 1341 The Fortune Teller  by Janet S. Tiger (c) Oct. 16, 2017      

                                               The Fortune Teller   
                                       A monologue by Janet S. Tiger   © All rights reserved 2017

        (The woman is dressed for the part, a colorful scarf, flowing skirt, carrying a crystal ball, she peers in, deeply absorbed, sees the audience, is startled)

Oh, I hope you have not been waiting long, I have been watching something, something very is .....the future!

We are going to have some terrible times in the future!  A terrible war,  with horrible bombs, and many people dying......

Oh, it pains me to look at this......there is an evil man - wait, more than one!

And they will try to destroy the world!

Please, try to find an island where you will be safe.....except, there is no safe place!  The whole world is in...flames!

Wait, I see the name of one of the evil men....his name is.....wait....H...I....T....Hitler!

        (Stops, confused)

Wait a minute......

         (She holds the ball upside down, examines it closely)

Oh, I'm sorry! . it was on the wrong setting..... for PAST, not future!   Please forgive me.....that's what happens when you try these newfangled computer balls.....

         (She throws the ball offstage, a crash is heard)

So, this session is no can just tell everyone, you went to....Miss Fortune Teller!
