Deanna and Sue high 5


Jenna:              Is this a meeting of the “happy, happy, happy”?


Sue:                 Why wouldn’t we be happy Jenna? It’s a brand new start.


Jenna:              It’s nothing more than another day. It happened 365 times last year, my guess is it’s gonna happen 365 times this year . . unless it’s leap year. . .  In which case , (does a little chant) . .  “Leap year coming once in four gives February one day more.”


Deanna:           Sounds like you aren’t a happy camper Jenna.


Jenna:              What’s to be happy about Deanna? . .  So it’s a new year. . . Big deal.


Sue:                 It’s a chance to start over fresh and new, a clean slate.


Jenna:              Have you turned on the news? . . . More violence in the mid-East, and here at home murder in the street. . . . Like I said, same old, same old.


Deanna:           Sure but there’s a chance that maybe . . .


Jenna:              Yeh right! . .  So you have come up with a marvelous new plan that will get everybody, (overact), friendly and cooperating?


Deanna:           Well I guess but . . .


Sue:                 Things could get better, maybe. . .


Jenna, angry:   Don’t tell me . . the lion will lay down by the lamb, right?


Stacy comes on stage


Stacy:              What are you guys arguing about; I could hear you clean across the street.
