Bathroom Monologue: Make Her Reaper

Tragedy tonight at a downtown theatre when a magician made his assistant disappear. The Russian stage man was making his first English-language performance. After a few minutes of having the audience look for her, he gave an incantation “to make her reappear.” Because of his heavy accent, the assistant instead returned in a robe and scythe. There were no survivors. Commuters who absolutely must drive through downtown should be on the lookout for a buxom vision of death in a sequined cloak.

  3. Thanks Mary! Happy to get you laughing before your morning starts. I guess the 6:00 AM regular posting time is better for some folks?

    Alan, check your rearview mirror. She comes on slow but follows fast.

  7. Joanie, I am a staunch supporter of the pun. Glad you liked that last line - it's my favorite too.

    Thanks Karen. That means a lot coming from one funny gal.

    Andreas, just don't rush to cuddle her.
