         (Actor enters- irritated)

What's the big deal about hoarding?  It has such a bad rep!  And such a name!

Sounds like a nasty thing - she whored her way threw college.  Who would like that to be said about them!

And really, what is the difference between saving things to recycle and hoarding?

For my house, I would prefer to use the term - recycling factory.

All the items I have are being saved - preparing them for a new life!  Where?  Does it matter?  I mean, they pay people - lots of people! - lots of money to dig in the ground for old junk, but when that happens, it's not hoarded's valuable archeological discoveries!

Well, let me tell you I've got a lot of those FUTURE archeological discoveries in my basement!

I am accumulating plastic bags!  And soon, plastic straws - of all colors and sizes!  And let's not forget styrofoam.....and my ceiling is filled with asbestos!  So please, do not judge!

      (Turns to leave, stops, looks back)

Hoarding, recycling - potato - potahto!  

      (Exits - be prepared, this monologue will probably be recycled, too!)
