Fern: I call to order the Milton Auxiliary Ladies Club. Today’s business is deciding the float design for our entry in this years annual Heritage Day Parade.”

Janis: Everyone’s here except Bernie.

Fern: Thank you, Janis. All right girls, the Heritage Day parade is only a month away and the theme this year is “Our Colorful World”.

Nadine: Our Colorful World? Why did they pick that?

Janis: Who knows, Nadine? It really doesn’t matter.

Lois: I heard it was because the people at the variety store brownnosed the mayor during the annual town picnic.

Nadine: Only thing I remember about the picnic was the orange drink. It was SO sour. Leave it to Robyn to mess up a simple recipe.

Lois: Heard Harley O’Dell was offering his purple passion in the parking lot.

Nadine: He was?

Debra: Ladies, listen up. I need to be out of here in precisely nine minutes for my next meeting.

Nadine: You’ve got another meeting? How come you’ve always got another meeting?

Fern: Ladies! My I have your attention? Thank you. Now then, I have taken the time to draw two ideas for our float. Pass them around and see which one like the best.

Janis: Remember our budget, Fern.

Fern: I did remember, Janis, and since it is so popular to ‘think green’; I incorporated that idea into our float. That’s why this year’s float will be assembled of recyclable items.

Nadine: Use only green? How can that be a colorful world?

Fern: Not just green Nadine. There are many colorful recyclable items with which to construct our entry for the parade.

Lois: I heard that the recyclable center was in the red.

Janis: That whole outfit is like a black hole when it comes to our tax dollars.

Fern: Ladies please. Look at these two drawings and decide which one you prefer.

Debra: Well, I’ll be tickled pink with either one, so I’ll let you ladies decide. I have five more minutes, and then I must leave.

Nadine: Five minutes? What are you talking about?

Fern: Ladies!! Let’s focus here. We need to decide the design for our float entry.

Lois: I vote for the first one.

Janis: One gets my vote.

Nadine: Mine, too.

Lois: I heard that John Roscoe, just out of the blue, told his wife he was going to resign as principal and become a pro golfer?

Nadine: A pro golfer? Why in the world would he do that?

Lois: Money and fame.

Janis: It’s rumored his wife went white as a sheet with the news and passed out.

Fern: QUIET! Thank you. Now that we have the design for the float, we need to get busy and collect certain colorful and recyclable things. Here, take a copy of this list. Bring these items next week.

Lois: Oh, my! I forgot I left a cake in the oven. I make a motion to adjourn.

Nadine: Forgot you’re baking a cake? Someday you’ll burn your house down, Lois.

Debra: I second it. Oh dear, I’m going to be late.

Fern: Ok, fine! Meeting adjourned.

This piece reads more like a play. I like the way you refer to the colours of cliches... especially the tickled pink. This is creative and unique.
