I NEED DETENTION (1 MINUTE MONOLOGUE)
by D. M. Larson
I need detention.
I really need detention. See, there's this girl... I know, I know, it always
starts with a girl ... But this girl is special... I mean it this time...
Really special. Her name is Harmony... But she goes by Harm. Cute huh? She can
harm me any time she wants. And she has too. A couple of times. But I deserved
it... Cause I touched her once. I didn't touch her anywhere bad. Just on the
shoulder. And she broke my finger. So I guess we kind of have held hands.
END OF ONE MINUTE VERSION
JIMMY (CONT. - for longer version)
just gonna ask to borrow a pencil. One of those ones she sharpens with her
pocket knife and then throws in the ceiling all over school. She even got one
in the gym ceiling. You know how high that is? Like 5000 feet. And I just stand
under those pencils, hoping one will fall down and I can have one of them for
my very own. Something to remember her by. Until I get in to detention.
figure out some way to get detention because I wanna see her more... Be with
her more... And turn Harm into Harmony again... Cause I see that beautiful
harmony under all that black and gloom. She just needs a reason to smile and I
want to be that reason.
So I have to get detention. What's something good... I
mean I want it to be really really good so I get thrown in there a long time...
Plus I have to make it worth it... Something great that she can respect... How
about giving the principal a wedgie? That would do it... A good old up the back
over the head mega wedgie. Let's do this.
