Ice Cream or Die
by Hà Gia Thịnh
* Monologue *
My brother and I go to the supermarket. I see all kinds of ice cream. I want to buy some. I take out my wallet. I open my wallet. Oops! No money! Then I go home to get my money, and I go back to the supermarket. To my surprise, the ice cream man tells me: “I’m sorry. I sold out all my ice cream. Come back tomorrow.” I’m very angry and sad.
The next day, I go to the supermarket again. Everything is closed. I wonder why. I see a tall man with a uniform. I guess he works at the supermarket. I ask him. He answers: “Today is Sunday. Nobody works on the weekend. Come back tomorrow.”
The next day, I go again to the supermarket. This time the tall man tells me: “We are doing some construction works. Come back after one month.” One month! It’s too long. I can’t wait one month to eat ice cream.
I’m so impatient. At 1:00 p.m. I have lunch. At 1:30 p.m. I am in front of the supermarket. Now I am so angry. I see the tall man, but this time I don’t want to hear anything from him. Quickly, I take out my gun, and I point it at the man’s head. Don’t worry! It isn’t a real one. It’s just a plastic toy that my mom gave me for my birthday.
The man is shaking. He is so scared. I shout: “Give me all your ice cream, or I will kill you now.” The poor man runs. He comes back with ten big boxes of ice cream. Now I am so happy. I can eat ice cream for months.
