Monologue Mania Day # 1568 by Janet S. Tiger (c) June  2, 2018      
                              Just Minor Problems

                                       A monologue by Janet S. Tiger (c) 2018   all rights reserved 

          (Woman in her 50s enters, wringing her hands)

I really appreciate your offering me the chance to be a part of this event.

Please excuse my indecision.  I am just very undecided at this point.  I mean, I just don't know.  There are several reasons I am unsure.  The last few days have been .....traumatic.

A friend who begged me to go with them on a mountain climbing trip ended up falling, and then they had to be carried off the mountain and because they were immobile, they had hypothermia and lost two toes!  And my youngest, who is supposed to be starting college, just informed me that - without telling anyone in the family, mind you, she has just married her crazy high school boyfriend and is about to have a baby......and I have a 91 year old uncle who raised me who has to go into a nursing home because I can't take care of him anymore... (takes deep breath)....but since no one has died, I guess everything is just...... minor problems.....but I am worried about taking another part right now, because I think that ....perhaps if you have the part  of a homeless woman who speaks nothing but gibberish, until the very last line -- and I do mean one line -- when she says something coherent- maybe I could take that.  Do you have a part like that?  Please?

        (Turns to leave, stops, looks back, speaks in gibberish as she exits, laughing)
