Theme: Monolog skit with humor, excellent for marriage enrichment, family, or other.
“Wives submit, husbands love, children obey” may be hard to accept and needs to be understood from the standpoint of “servant leaders” to be comprehended that is the formula for a healthy family. Even a “5 person family in a 1 bathroom house.”
Bible Reference: Ephesians 5:6:4
Cast: 1, written for middle age female
Set, Sound, Costumes: standard
Sample of script:
actor comes onstage
Hey, sorry I’m late, busy morning at our house.
What am I saying? . . It’s always a busy morning at our house!
Kids jockeying for position in the bathroom, joy of being a five person family in a one bathroom house!
When our kids were small I used to dream of a fully automatic kitchen, each person could dial in their breakfast order . . kinda like McDonalds without cooks screaming.
If I found a genie in a bottle I’d rub that sucker and wish for an assembly line bathroom . .
(actor stands rigid, arms high, moves head side to side, a couple of steps sideways)
Everyone stands in line, gets washed, shampooed, blow dried and ejected to breakfast table . . . know what I mean?
And who’s worst at getting ready in the morning? . . . My dear husband!
Takes him longer to do his hair than for 4H kids to get animals ready for the show ring!
Maxwell . . that’s my husband for those who don’t know . . .
Maxwell, he has somewhat been losing his hair. . .
Somewhat? . . . That’s like saying vehicular traffic is a little sparse at the North Pole!
I gotta believe Maxwell’s giving individual treatment to each of the 63 hairs on his shiny head!
Reminds me of my friend Rose, her hubby Ronnie disappeared, Rose was real concerned, asked me to go with her, make out a police report.
Police sergeant asked for a description of Ronnie, Rose says . . . “6’3”, 195 lbs, flowing blonde hair, face of an Adonis . . . .
I was shocked, reminded her Ronnie was 5’4”, overweight, bald and face only a mother could love! Rose countered that since these nice policemen were doing a search she might as well check on what’s available out there.
Regardless, don’t get me wrong . . . I love my husband . . . He is the head of our house . . .
In our devotions Maxwell and I were reading from Ephesians . . . . the part about husbands you need to spoil your wives . . . (pause) . . I am maybe paraphrasing a bit there.
