In this children’s monologue, BRIAN complains to his father about how he doesn’t want to walk the dog because it’s too cold outside.
Brian: I don’t wanna walk the dog, Dad. It’s too cold outside. You walk the dog. (beat) I know I wanted the dog but still…I walk the dog everyday. Why can’t we have a yard? (beat) What? No, I’m not getting wise but I’m just saying that you could walk the dog sometimes, too. (beat) I know it’s my dog, Dad, but it’s a lot to handle.
I know I agreed to take on the responsibility but this is insane. I’m just a kid. You know, there’s video games and TV and my friends…I have a life. It’s like all I do is walk the dog around. I have homework. Lots of homework, Dad. I’m trying to get good grades and this is cutting into my study time. I’m one person. A little help would be nice. (beat) I’m not exaggerating. I’m telling you the truth. This is getting tough for me.
It’s freezing outside. I could die. (beat) I wanna keep Sheba but it’s, you know, we gotta figure this thing out, Dad. It’s getting in the way of my life. Please.
