Monologue Mania Day # 162 by Janet S. Tiger Un-Comiconscious July 24, 2014
A monologue by Janet S. Tiger © all rights reserved firstname.lastname@example.org
(The actor stumbles onstage, wearing the wildest type of costume that might fit in at Comic-Con. Looks around, wiping sleep from eyes, then peers at an alarm clock, horrified.)
Oh, my God! How could I have overslept? (Screams) For four days!
I mean, I had on all these alarm clocks....
(Looks at watch, pulls another alarm from a pocket, almost in tears.)
I took a shower last night! I slept in my costume and I even ate breakfast before I went to sleep so I could be there early! What happened, Thor?
Or is it Thorette?
It took me all year to make this costume, okay, maybe only since I got the tickets....ok, maybe the last two months but.....I can't wait another year! What am I gonna do?
(Has an idea, puts out arms and starts running around stage)
I think I'll fly over to the Convention Center......maybe something is left over....
Ooh, look at all the garbage! And wait, is that me? From last year? Let me take a closer look....
(Holds fingers around eyes like binoculars)
That is me! It is last year! But if I overslept, how can it be.....
(Puts arms down, shakes)
Is this....is this a dream? Oh, please let it be a dream!
I can't feel anything, must be a dream.....
(Hears something, looks around)
That sounds like an alarm, is it time to get up?
(Looks at watch)
Oh, no, I can't believe it! I'm late! How could I have overslept! For four days!
I heard that before....I think I'm still in the dream!
(Bends over, then lies down, starts shaking and shivering, sits up suddenly, breathing very deeply)
(Pinches an arm)
(Looks at cellphone, very carefully)
(Stands up and cheers)
Yeah! It's Comic-Con!
(Looks at costume)
And I have my costume, and I'm ready!
Comic- Con, here I come!
(Puts arms out, starts to 'fly' off, looks back, smiles)
I knew that fourth alarm clock was the charm!
(And it's off to Comic-Con - Irene, thanks for today's idea! Have a great time everyone!)
