Monologue Mania Day # 1638 A House Filled With Young by Janet S. Tiger (c) Aug. 11, 2018
                        A House Filled With Young
                         a monologue from a play to be written by Janet S. Tiger (c)  2018

              (Older woman comes out, smoking a pipe)

Ain't you never seen no one smokin a pipe?  You're young, so maybe you ain't.

My grandma used to smoke a pipe, so now, so do I.  But I don't inhale.  Because that ain't good for you.  What is good is, no one ever forgets you smokin a pipe.

I like that.  When I was young, I wanted everyone to look at me.  

So I'd paint my face just like my mother.....and everyone'd laugh.

I got older, dressed up in my mama's young dresses, so all the boys'd look at me.

It worked.

Now, I am not young anymore, so....the pipe makes sure people don't forget me.

That's the biggest.  I don't wanna be forgot.

Not yet.  Not while I'm still here.

While I can still recall things.

That's why I try to have lots of  food like that pizza, because then my grandchildren come over....I hate pizza, but you gotta have what the young want....because when you have a house full of stay young.......

         (Takes a deep breath, exhales slowly)

I am gonna die.

Soon.  Mebbe if'n you want, I kin leave this pipe for you.  

        (She turns to leave, stops, looks back)

But I dunno when that soon will be.   So, come on're young, and I like a house filled with young........

And maybe ...I'll tell you the secret of this pipe.......

        (Lights down.  End of scene)
