A Monologue

This is a monologue I wrote to audition for a school play:

So, there is this boy, called Todd Temple. Last week he started this crusade of flirting. I know I’m crazy, but it is totally a crusade. We learned about crusades in history.
The crusades were a long ordeal; I mean they went on for years and years. I don’t know if Todd will keep flirting with me for years and years, but he’s been acting this way for an entire week and that is a long time to be interested in a girl, especially for him.
The Europeans really only wanted fame and glory, they didn’t care a lick about saving the holy land, and everyone knows that. Todd is the same way. I don’t know what his motives are, but I’m certain their not for the right reasons. Then again, what are the right reasons to flirt anyway?
Well, Todd will be very unsuccessful; I am sure, just like the crusades were. They didn’t accomplish anything and neither will he. Okay, so maybe I flirt back. But he starts it. And he’s not going to win me over. Todd is great, but I how can I ever get over Doug Johnson?
Besides, Todd is the most disorganized flirt I have ever met. Not only does he tease me, but he also teases with Katie, Heather, and Sarah. So I can easily conclude that he isn’t sincerely sweet on just me. You’d think if he liked a girl he’d just stick to wooing her. What a player!
Most of all, this series of croqueting simply just can’t be taken seriously. I don’t know what he’s doing. He pretty much tackled me in the hall at school the other day and gave me a huge bear hug. It was almost like he wanted to kiss me!
But, you know, the truth is, I don’t think I would mind if he actually did kiss me…
