Monologue for a woman 60s to 80s by Daniel Guyton.
I liked this one though not quite as strong from a want/objective perspective as the first Merry Cougar Christmas monologue from the prior page (75) of the monologue collection. This one is more expository and contains some personal revelation (past tense, not discovered in the moment, though recently discovered) and emotional catharsis/release that will give you an opportunity to show off some acting chops. Basically, going after young men herself, she understands her late husband’s cheating with younger mistresses better. She feels released from taking it so personally as being about her shortcomings, and more about his fear of death. She is walking in his shoes now. The scene is fun, she’s still addressing Ethel as before, and they are at the mall. Also, little bit of good present action with Ethel; she still feels the need to justify herself (dating younger) to Ethel. She is still trying to gain Ethel’s understanding and lessen or even eliminate her judgements and negative thoughts about Sylvia’s youthful dating pool.
