Blogville Christmas Carrol -ACT 1
Scrooges office- at right The ever faithfull & loyal Bob Cratchit- working on the accounting. Scrooge sneaks into the room behind Poor Bob,
CRATCHIT! and of course at this poor Bob is statled & he almost spills the ink,
"DO YOU HAVE THOSE FIGURES FOR ME YET?"
Cratchit-"I'mworking on them now sir"
Scrooge- ' Well be quick about it,When I had you stay after normal bussiness hours it Wasn't for a Social visit- Your here to WORK- See that you DO it.
Cratchit- Yes Sir & by the way- MERRY CHRISTMAS Uncle
Scrooge-MERRY CHRISTMAS???? BBAAHH!!! Every Year tis the same thing- Merry Christmas, Peace on earth, Good will toward men-Bah! Its enough to make a person REGURGITATE! & I Suppose the BUZZARDS will be around from the local Charity
wanting ME to give them Christmas cheer again this year. Well if christmas cheer is what they want, Christmas cheer I shall give them! ON THE END OF MY BOOT I WILL!!!
Why in the Hell can't they Leave a person alone!- Who NEEDS Christmas!-If I had my way- EVERY IDIOT that went about with MERRY CHRISTMAS ON HIS FOOL lips would be Boiled in his own damn pudding & BURRIED WITH A STAKE OF HOLLY DRIVEN THROUGH HIS HEART!!!! BAH HUMBUG!!!
Cratchit- I'm sorry to see you so disturbed sir, it IS Christmas time.
Scrooge-in a very sarcastic voice- I would THINK
you would be disturbed as well if I came along & PICKED YOUR Pocket, EVERY 25th of December.& I suppose you want the whole day off too.
Cratchit- If its quite convieniant sir?
Scrooge- ITS NOT CONVIENIENT SIR! Not at all! What is Christmas time to you but a time to spend unearned MONEY on USELESS gifts? a time to find Yourself another hour older but not a penny richer- A time to wieght down your allready unballanced & overburdened books- COMPLETE STUPIDITY & TOTAL FOOLISHNESS!!!
Cratchit-Sir, Gifts are not the meaning of Christmas, giving is .Its a time for sharing our blessings that God has given us with one another.
Scrooge- HHMMMPPPPHHH! Your God Has Given Me NO gifts!-The Only Thing He has given me is a pain in the Neck. I've had to WORK for everything I Have,& Shareing? A FINE lot of good that will do me- I'VE NEVER SEEN A PROFIT from it!
Cratchit- I dare say not everything turns a profit- at least NOT in Gold or Silver.But some things Profit in far better ways-I Say Praise God for showing us what has REAL VALUE!
Scrooge- & I say- BLAST HIM for not leaving me alone!You keep Christmas in YOUR way & LET me keep it in MINE!
Cratchit-But thats just it- You dont keep it.
Scrooge- Then Let ME leave it be- PREFERABLY BURRIED if I wish.
Cratchit- But Sir Don't You See-Scrooge cuts him off in mid sentance-CRATCHIT! I DON'T PAY YOU TO PREACH! I pay you to work WHICH I WONT DO for MUCH longer if you don't get Back To It.IF YOU WANT TO THANK God for something- THANK HIM I'M Your Uncle!!! If it were not for THAT fact ,you would have found Your home in the Gutter a long time ago! Now get those figures DONE by 7 oclock before I Decide to SEVER our WONDERFULL relationship.!
