Pick Up Line

In this comedy monologue, First Move, Arash is trying to figure out whether or not he should ask out the lady he likes.

Arash:  I told Josh it was okay, but I don’t know why I said it was not okay.  I’ve liked Abbie for so long.  She’s never asked me out and I guess I can’t wait forever.  I’m not gonna ask her out, not like Abbie.

Josh is a dueche bag.  I can’t believe he’s going to ask her out…

It makes me so mad.  Maybe, I should have been the one to make the first move.  I don’t know.

And I bet she’s gonna say yes to Josh and they’re gonna start dating and I have to live with regret that I didn’t do anything.

Why couldn’t she just ask me out?  I feel that she likes me.  Makes no sense.

No, you know what?  I’m gonna talk to her.  I’m gonna get to her before dueche josh and I don’t care what I told Josh because I liked her first and I want to date her and that’s that.  Right?

…I don’t know…I’m confused.  What do you think I should do?

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!
