I just want to say, that I think your monologues are brilliant. I've looked over a few to see what I could put in my portfolio and was amazed by your articulation and your talent. Thank you for providing me with examples of what a monologue should look like. Most of them were perfect for me and clearly expressed the things that need to be said. : D thanks again,
A.K.A big Horton monologue fan.
