Jack And Jill Plays - Part 27- You Should




About Jack and Jill Plays:

This is a new thing I'm doing.  Posting a short play every day as long as I can.  This does not mean that I wrote this play today but I might have.  (My life is not always my own what with work and a 4 year old running around so maybe I wrote it today or maybe it was stockpiled in preparation for the days I can't get in writing.)  My goal is to do at least 100 of these or maybe more but probably 45 or 50 is the length of a full length play so even that would be good.  100 would be better.  300?  amazing.  500?  Does anyone want 500 of these plays?  Anyway, the goal is consecutive days.

The normal things about plays apply-- don't produce or reproduce this play without my permission.  I wrote it so I own it.  Etc.

You Should

(JILL rides a unicorn across the stage.  JACK enters from the other side.)

JILL
Hi Jack.

JACK
Hi Jill.  How's it going?

JILL
Good.  Good.

JACK
How's that book you were reading?

JILL
Okay.

JACK
I stopped reading mine.  Then I started reading the internet.  sigh.

JILL
You know what you should do?

JACK
What's that?

JILL
That healthy eating/ more sleep/ meditation/ me time/ exercising/ being present/ being grateful/ helping others/ mindfulness/ drinking more water/ with a jade egg.

JACK
Yeah, maybe.  Sure.  I should probably do that.  I just drank juice so--

JILL
Juice is bad for you.

JACK
I know.  I think I know.  What do I know?

JILL
Just do some yoga.  Or breathing.

JACK
Right yeah.  I totally intend to do that.  Later.  A little later.  First I'm going to eat this box of doughnuts.

(JACK eats doughnuts, one after another.  JILL and the unicorn watch.)
