Monologue Mania Day # 1362     11/7  by Janet S. Tiger (c) Nov. 7 , 2017  

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

          (Actor comes out rolling dice.  Smiles, picks up, rolls again.  Smiles again)

I can't lose!  I mean, how lucky can you get!   7....then eleven.....eleven, then seven, lucky!  I'm the luckiest guy in the world!

See these?

          (Holds up the dice)

I got these in a game, won 'em!  And they been lucky ever since!

I mean, hey!  My whole life, I never won nothin'!  I mean nothin'!  Like it was easy just to stay in bed, cause there was no way to win, but then, I woke up one day and had this dream.  After I woke you, you know, like a dream that was alive.....and that dream was that I should go and work at the 7/11!

Because it was lucky.....lucky numbers......so I go, and whaddaya know?  The guy on the graveyard shift is gone.....he got shot!  Not his lucky night, but lucky for me!

So I start that night, and the first guy who comes in, he's high!  Like he has lucky shoes or somethin' and he pays for his gas and his coffee, and he takes these dice outta his pocket and gives 'em to me, and says, here's your tip, kid....and he leaves....and I look at the dice and they are sparkly!

            (Holds up the dice and shakes them by his ear)

What a tip!  I been using his tip to make me money ever since!

          (He turns to leave, stops, looks back)

You know what the real tip was.....he turned back to me, and he says.....(very loud)
......don't gamble!

         (Puts the dice in pocket)

And I haven't, but I run the craps game in this town - and I made me a fortune...and I bought me a whole bunch of 7/11 stores......all because of...lucky number 11/7

        (Exits to more good luck)
