Story told by the Drama Club
He's holding the American flag. He must have been in a parade, something important. There is a car next to him. There are people in the background. He looks like an Italian immigrant. He's got that Italian face. His face is telling you, "I'm here too, because I'm Italian." It's the Columbus Day Parade. He wants to be noticed. He's is very stern looking. Very dignified. He's probably a business man. He's got a suit on. Maybe he is a grand martial. Maybe he's a politician. He's a good politician because he looks dignified. This takes place in New York with all these buildings around. It's Columbus Day around October. There are people in their hats and jackets. There is a lot of noise with people talking. There is no music. This grand martial Tony Rosario looks like he's miserable but he's important. So if he's important he feels good because he is holding the American flag. He'll have to go to the bar and have a beer after the parade with his drinking friends. He wishes that everything comes in that they voted for. He could be the governor wishing for more money. When he's at the bar with friends everybody's happy. They are having a good time. They eventually get what they wish for. They are happy and they go home to sleep. They've been up for a long time.
