We Would Have Had A Lot In Common

In this monologue, We Would Have Had A Lot In Common, Jacob talks about wishing he had known his Grandfather as an adult.

JACOB:  Want to know what I was thinking about earlier today?  My family…my Grandfather particularly.  It’s weird how you can sort of feel somebody even though they are gone…does that make sense?

For some reason I was thinking about him.  He died when I was a kid, so I never really got a chance to get to know him…I have a few memories of him though.

Although he never got to see me grow up into an adult, I have always believed that we are very similar.

I’ve seen photos and family videos and there is something about the way he carried himself…it’s like looking at myself.

I’m not claiming to be on his level…I look up to him, he’s my Grandfather but I tend to think we would have a lot in common.  The same temperament, behavior, outlook on life, love for our family…

It’s strange to feel like someone’s spirit moves with your own.

I’ve never told anyone this so I hope I don’t come off sounding stupid or crazy but it’s the truth.

Yeah, I wish I would have had the chance to spend time with him…even for a day.

The only good thing about missing someone or wishing you were closer to someone who is no longer around, is that it makes you realize that those loved ones who are in your life…cherish them…hold them dear while you still can because one day, one day we will all be gone.
