A BETTER FIT
The scene opens with a woman waiting at a return counter holding a Jesus costume and a Superman costume.
Clerk: May I help you?
Customer: Yes, I'd like to make an exchange.
Clerk: Sure, we can handle that. Do you have both of your items?
Customer: I do. I'd like to trade this (the Jesus costume) for this (the Superman costume).
Clerk: Okay, and what's the reason for your return?
Customer: This one just doesn't suit me. It's too hard to wear every day and it's almost impossible to get on and off.
Clerk: Well, you know, ma'am, this one's not supposed to be taken off. It's designed to be worn all the time.
Customer: See! That's another thing. I need more variety in my wardrobe. I don't think I should be expected to wear this every day!
Clerk: Just curious. Why have you chosen this other outfit?
Customer: Oh, this is so more me! I like the colors. It goes with everything I already have so I don't have to make any changes, and, the best part is, if I don't want anyone to see it, I just cover it up. No problem!
Clerk: Are you sure about this ma'am?
Customer: Oh, I'm sure. This one's just too confining and it's way too much work. This outfit is a much better fit!

Sandra, What a great idea for a skit! I would have liked to see it go on a little longer - but I guess it depends on what you're using the skit for. There is definitely potential for more dialogue and possibly further explanation by the clerk of why he/she should choose the Jesus costume. I enjoyed this very much... Blessings, Lynda Schab
