I'm in the right place, aren't I?

I mean, this is the right address?  Oh, wait, there's the name!  Whole Body Donation Center!

Yes, I'm here because I want to make a donation.

Well, I already have, I mean, we donated my husband's body a few years ago, and's my turn.


Paperwork?  No, I don't have any paperwork.  Why would I need any?


Oh, this is not for the future.....I want to donate my body now.  


Yes, that's right.  Now.  You can see that I'm in decent shape, not too decayed!  If you want, I'll show you....

      (Starts to remove top, listens, stops)

All right......but I will be a wonderful subject for your students, for your projects, for your....whatever! Don't you see..... I want to be useful!

I see no need to wait!  Wait for what?  Until I can no longer do anything?  I don't want that!  I'm ready now!  I already can't afford the house I live in...I can't afford to move....or to do...anything!  So me!  


You call that an explanation!  That explains nothing!  You say you will only take dead people - in this day and age......(very disgusted).....what a ...what a.....bigoted view!

        (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

  If you don't want me.....maybe I'll just take my donation elsewhere....

        (Exits not really)
