Let’s just say I could run this foundation single-handedly.

Let’s just say no one here knows how to do their job and I’ve been doing this for years.

Let’s just say, between you and me, my football event is gonna really show ‘em how it’s done.

They’re trying to tell me what to do, can you believe it? They say these football players won’t draw a big crowd.

I need you to go to the sports store and buy me a football.

You know what a football looks like, don’t you?

You made a typo here on this thing. We can’t have any mistakes.

I typed that? Well, then my mistakes are your fault.

These guys are *****. Don’t pay them.

It’s not my fault no one wants to come to this event.

Tell everybody to get down to the bar and make it look like people came to this ****** event.

That was a complete fiasco.

But everyone was against me from the start.

Nobody would work with me.
Prompt: write a dramatic monologue.
