That’s Why I’m Here, Miss Tyler

In drama monologue, “That’s Why I’m Here, Miss Tyler,” Milo gives his honest feedback on the cup of coffee he just took a sip from.

MILO: I would be the first to test the morning brew for Mr. Jeff. He used to say, “Milo, for all the palates in the world, I’ve found the one that keeps me in business.” He said that to me. I wrote it down in my notebook. We had this ongoing collaboration, I would try it, and then he would alter it, and make the adjustments. The slightest detail would make a world of difference. We worked in this way for years, always tweaking things to make them right, to try something new, to make it better. That is all he cared about – the details in serving others, a good cup of coffee. For Jeff, nothing was just simple, everything had meaning. There was art to everything he did in life, and this cafe, the connection with his customers, this corner of the world, the smell of great coffee, the conversations and relationships that were born from this place were his art.

(tapping the mug) This coffee…is heavy. It is much too dark. It’s like getting kicked in the head by a horse.

When my lips first touched the rim of the glass, I was met with caution, just by the mere smell of it. It wasn’t wholesome. It was angry. It wasn’t smooth, it was abrupt.

I’m sorry, but I have to tell you the truth, Miss Tyler.
