Monologue Mania Day # 1605 Juuling  and Scrolling by Janet S. Tiger (c) July 9, 2018 

Hopefully improved since yesterday!  (Sorry about the tech issues)

                                    Juuling* and Scrolling
                       A monologue by Janet S. Tiger (c)  2018   all rights reserved

      (Young man comes out, he is smiling, unconcerned, holds up what looks like a USB port.  He examines the item)

Sure, I'll be happy to explain......this is called a juul...just like jewel, only it tastes better!

Cool, right?  And they have good flavors, mango's my favorite!  So what if each pod has more nicotine than a whole pack of cigarettes!  We don't smoke, we juul!  And while we're juuling, we're scrolling, on our phones....

          (He illustrates)

(Listens, laughs)  Oh, yeah, I know!  I mean, you can't sell these to anyone under 21.  But it ain't against the law to use them?  Right?  I know my rights!

 Can I help it if my friends are all under 19?   And this is what they want!  They're not cigarettes, hell, cigarettes are bad.  I  been watching those ads since I was 10 years old, everyone know cigarettes'll kill ya!  And even playing these games can kill ya, I mean, one guy in China, he played for days and I think it was his kidneys that failed!  Wait a minute.....

         (Looks it up on phone, shows)

See (reads)  death by phone!

But they don't letcha scroll in class.....not Instagram.  But everyone knows how to do it......the teacher doesn't have a phone detector......(listens)  Oh yeah, the, 
 when I get them juuls, and I ain't admittin' I got these juuls......well, I make sure I never sell them.  At all.  I give them away.  Can I help it if my friends are...generous?  They give me everything is legal, right?

It's funny, I just read somethin' that they didn't design these to look like flashdrives - I guess it was an accident, right?  And these big companies didn't design them to be small, easy to hide, it was a coincidence, because a flashdrive is small.....funny, huh?

It's not smoking!  I would never sell drugs or cigarettes!

        (turns to leave, stops, looks back)

But....if they wanted to get kids to avoid these juuls....well, everyone knows you make somethin' illegal it's really interesting!

         (Exits to a new world!)
