    A SHORT PLAY ENTITLED
    Enough to Make You _______



    Jan: So get this. Hold still, Sweeheart. My brother says they need a substitute bowler tonight.

    Millie: Well, I...

    Jan: I told him he had holes in his head. Oh, could you get that , Deb? I swear, these snow suits get harder to zip every year.

    Deb: Hello?

    Jan: Hold still, Honey. Auntie Jan will have this...

    Deb: Oh yes, Mrs. Peterson.

    Jan: All right. Now you can go out in the yard.

    Millie: Jan, do you think we'll be able to...

    Jan: Just a minute. Have some more coffee, why don't you?

    Deb: She's letting Teddy outside, Mrs. Peterson. Ben is building a snowman for him. Jan...

    Jan: Yes?

    Deb: Your mother wants to know what's the name of that thing you got.

    Jan: An oxy-vaporizer.

    Deb. What?

    Jan: A vaporizer. I got it from QVC. Millie, I think we're going to have to postpone our plans. I'm not feeling too well.

    Deb: She says, No. That disease you've got.

    Jan: What?! Is she crazy? I've told her 500 times in the last 3 years. Tell her Hoof and Mouth.

    Millie: Jan, dear. Have you tried exercise? My sister bought one of those machines you keep in the bedroom, and she says...

    Deb: Jan, your mother wants to know if you can drive her to Wal-Mart this afternoon.

    Jan: Oh, Good Lord! Tell her of course I can't.

    Millie: And my chiropractor sells the most marvelous vitamins. Things you never heard of before like vitamin K and O.

    Jan: Millie, Honey. There's no such thing a vitamin O. Can you glance out the window and see what my nephews are up to. I wonder where their mother is . She promised...

    Deb: There's the phone again. I'll get it.

    Jan: I'm sorry, Millie. I really think I need to lie down for a bit.

    Millie: But I thought you had been lying down.

    Deb: Jan, it's some lady from the church. CAn you bake 6 dozen cookies for the...

    Jan: No!

    Millie: And Dottie told me...

    Jan: Dottie Brainfeeble?

    Millie: Oh, Jan. YOu know that's not her name. She sells the marvelous product that guaranteed to...Jan?...Jan?

    Deb: I think she went to lie down, Millie.

    Millie: Well, for goodness sake. We were supposed to go shopping. I swear I don't know what's wrong with that girl!

    Thanks for making the effort, Fight.


    Well, you know how it is. All we artists ask in return for our creative efforts are a little appreciation and a lot of money.

    Just thought of something I had not remembered for years. Around 7th or 8th grade I wrote a play which was produced!
    The script was about 3 pages long. The productions costs were zero. The play had one performance.

    Well, it played to a full house, so I guess it was a success.

    You are a funny guy for sure. I think people may not get it. You have that British dry humor which I like a lot. You remind me of a British comedien called Graham Norton, he is very risque though.

    This play sounds a lot like the usual scenario.

    I can add to it. I have been vegetarian for 35 years.

    MIL I got Anne chicken as I remembered she does not eat meat

    DH Chicken is meat

    MIL Oh well, she'll just have to do without

    DH Anne is not too well today

    MIL Oh what's wrong with her?

    DH Oh her FM/CFS as usual

    MIL Well she is always working I can't see there is much wrong with her when she can do all THAT.

    DH well she has to do it pain or not as unlike you we are poor and she cannot pay another

    MIL So is she eating the chicken or not?


    Love Anne Cromwell

    I really enjoyed that, funny and to the point and not too taxing on my feeble brain.

    Maybe we can collaborate on a play. Like Moss Hart and George S. Kauffmann.





    Thanks for the bouquets, everybody. Hope you are all having a good day.
