Being Underwhelmed

This is a dark humor monologue that explores Arash is numb to life because he is absolutely bored stiff with his surroundings and everything in it during quarentine.

Arash:  I’m underwhelmed.  Nothing impresses me or excites me.  I am amazed by nothing.  I am numb to this world and everything in it.  I go through life with one face that doesn’t move.  I never smile, cry, laugh, frown.  I’m a hollow vessel and my thoughts are empty.

Yeah.

My friend tells me I should seek adventure.  I tell my friend that there is nothing adventurous.

I work in the mail department. I do the mail.  Meet all kinds of personalities and I’m immune to the happy people, stressed people and idiot people.

An invisible shield has enveloped my being and my eyes are clogged with fog.  Nothing reaches me and I reach nothing.

Existence is only breathing…silently.

Arash has been writing stories ever since he could hold a pencil! What started out as an intrinsic love for storytelling has turned into his lifelong passion. There’s nothing he likes better than writing (and reading) stories that is humorous in English and Persian languages, with a touch of Suspense and a poignant streak of truth running through them. Arash is also a YouTuber, Persian singer/songwriter, blogger, traveler, filmmaker, big dreamer, and professional kabob eater. When he’s not writing or dreaming up new stories, you can find him in an adventure road-tripping to national parks! If you want to see Arash in his element (ranting about stories) check out his YouTube channel.
