Arash’s Gone Monologue

In Arash’s Gone monologue , Arash visits his father at their trailer home in order to look after them ever since his grand mother passed away early in the years.

ARASH: Doesn’t it concern you that I travel two hours each day to make sure you haven’t died.I cleaned for you, i am responsible for myself 14 years. And I can’t stand you moaning each time you make your way to the toilet, which is happening too often now.

Think you’d slow down on those liquors you keep in this house and HOW DO YOU DO IT? How does a man in your condition keep alcohol like you do? Hmm? Stomach out to here, waddling around this house like a penguin looking for snow. Lighten the load my father!

What you want for dinner? Want me to make you some egge? Dad? Hey, I’m talking to you…Dad? Oh, I see, just gonna ignore me.

Alright. ok. I didn’t mean to come down on you like I did but your philosophy on life stinks.

Can’t stand the way you live. I dont want bottles in this house during quarentine times. it should have been prohibition in usa. hmm

Alright. You say things to me that set me off, things that don’t show no respect for me and what I do for you. You always go head to head with me and then you go new jewish and ignore me like you do but you ain’t right! Ignoring me won’t make you right!

Ahhh, what’s the sense of it. I didn’t mean to upset you and besides I just got here, we shouldn’t peak until later. lol You get that? We’ll save the shouting after dinner. What’s wrong Father…you crying?
