SILLY AND YELLOW

BY BRANDON L.


 

 

                                                                                                  Characters:  Silly the Tiger, 4 years old

                Yellow the Monkey, 2 years old

 

Setting:  In the house where they live, their owner is home.  They’re in the living room.  The living room looks free of space, empty room with just the characters there.

 Time: Morning, sunny, summer

 At Rise:  You see an empty room with the two, Silly and Yellow sitting there.  They’re talking, trying to have fun.

 



Silly:

I want to do all the things I can do today, so tomorrow I can do the things I couldn’t do today.

 

Yellow:

I want to be free of any disturbances so I can be more attentive to do all the activities and then tomorrow, I’ll be able to be able to do everything to my full potential.  (To himself) I don’t want to be distracted by shiny things so I can have fun today.

 

Silly:

Hi.  (quiet, sits there) I have a problem with these uncomfortable times with the ones I love at home, good thing is I’m trying my best.

 

Yellow:

Thank you for trying.

 

Silly:

More than anything I want to be able to enjoy myself when at home and to be able to be the best I want to be.

 

Yellow:

I want to be free from distractions so I won’t be so shy, so I can have more fun.

 

Silly:

Well I’m glad to hear that.  Yellow, how are you going to have more fun tomorrow?  What are you going to do to have fun tomorrow?

 

Yellow:

I am going to make myself free of distraction so I can have fun.

 

Silly:

What distraction are you talking about?

 

Yellow:

The distractions are shiny things.  The distractions make me shy.

The shiny things stop me from having fun by making me shy and when I am shy I became more withdrawn.

 

Silly:

I think that you are not as happy as you were, and I want you to be very happy.

The only reason I think your fear is getting in the way of us having fun is because I can’t see why you get so shy all of a sudden.

 

Yellow:

When I become shy all of a sudden I become less interactive.  What happens to me when I’m less interactive is I become less interactive and less motivated to do things, like to say as much.  I just don’t talk as much when I’m talking.

 

Silly:

When you don’t want to do things, I want to do everything in my power to be organized and try harder.

I am organizing the things in order to have fun by going out and listening to music and I’m trying harder to make things work.  I am trying to make having fun work.

(new idea) I can keep you from seeing the shiny things so you don’t become distracted.  So if I do my job, I’ll keep you from being shy.

 

Yellow:

The shiny things are small in colorful places.

 

Silly:

I can’t see them.

 

Yellow:

The shiny things can’t be shown by me.

 

Silly:

Maybe where I want to listen to music there aren’t a lot of shiny things.  I don’t know this so I can’t tell you…

 

Yellow:

I won’t leave the house to listen to music because, I’m going out to eat sweets. 

I do want to go out to eat sweets with you.

 

Silly:

I do want to go out and eat sweets, and listen to music.

We can’t leave the house because we have to get ready and prepare for this kind of stuff.  We have to prepare ourselves and how we interact with each other in order to leave.

 

Yellow:

We have to prepare ourselves by becoming more organized at home to leave.  I have to prepare myself for different things.  Like setting a schedule for myself, so if the shiny things come, I can move on and keep having fun.

(They open the door to leave and then the shiny things appear everywhere.  Yellow becomes shy.)

 

Yellow:

Silly, let’s rock.  (thumbs up)

Yes, I still want to go out even though the shiny things are everywhere.

The reason why, is because I see another way. 

 

THE END
