actor comes on stage, walking backwards, talking with unseen person offstage
Hey listen, I am so glad you told me about Pastor, I for a fact did not know that, no siree!
Hey, but see you around, for sure!
actor turns, comes on stage, shaking his head, shocked
Can you imagine? . . . Pastor’s he’s gonna have himself a birthday, how about that!
Hey, I mean, it’s not that Pastor is gonna have himself a birthday so much . . . I mean like everyone goes and has themselves a birthday and all.
But no one I have ever heard of has themselves a birthday like Pastor he’s gonna have.
Way I figure, Rory, the dude I was chattin’ with out there a minute ago . . Rory he for sure must’a got his info all messed up! . . . You’re for sure not gonna believe what Rory told me.
Rory says . .
actor motions for the audience to come closer, whispers
Rory says . . Pastor he’s gonna be . . . 69!
hushes the audience
Shhhhhh keep your voices down . . I mean, there’s for sure gotta be a mistake!
I mean, I knew Pastor was gettin’ up there . . . but . . 69 . . . Wowsers!
Oh I know there’s been some even older folks around, guys in the past . . in the Bible.
I seem to recall back some time ago, Pastor he preached about this old guy lived way back in the Old Testament times. . . Methuselah I think was his name. . . And I mean Methuselah he was like way old . . 72, maybe 73 as I recall.
So if memory serves about Methuselah, Pastor he’s gonna give old Methuselah a run for the record!
I gotta tell you . . amazing is what our Pastor is. . . Us young people, we are more than blessed to have a Godly man like our Pastor . . someone we can look up to . . . try to be like him.
I heard tell Pastor he’s been sharing the word of God for like . . I believe it’s been like 33 years now! . . And not just sharing God’s word . . but sharing God’s word in a way that all of us can understand . . . even us younger guys!
