Monologue Mania Day # 1596 My Choice (from Scene 2 - Let Me Finish!) by Janet S. Tiger (c) June  30, 2018 

                            My Choice
                             (from Scene 2 of Please, Let Me Finish!)     
                       A monologue by Janet S. Tiger (c)  2018   all rights reserved

          (Eli listens to his daughter and shakes his head)

ELI -  So you think because people live longer, death isn't around as much?  That we humans have forgotten what it's like to die?  (Laughs)  That's what I love about you my dear daughter, you are funny!  

You think you can get away from dying with anti-biotics?  That surgery will stop death?  Think!  Death is never far!  Death is always with us, in every minute of every day!

Death could be a million things - a blood clot in an artery while you sleep, it could be a car hitting you, or an asteroid!  Maybe it's the banana peel you don't see that makes you slip and smack your neck......or's taking too many pills with too many glasses of vodka......

Death is not a disappearing act - it's now more of a surprise, but if you think about it,  not really.  Whatever we say or do, we know, that at any time - death could be here, now.....and the most important thing, death is not the enemy.

Because death is what makes life precious.

And that is why......I need your that my life, what I have left, will be my choice.  And that my death....will also choice.
