What's My Hobby?
SETTING: The scene opens with a bunch of boys talking about their hobbies. Each, in turn, gets the
others to guess what his hobby is by using the “ten-dollar word” to describe it.
(Here are some suggested hobbies and what they are:)
Numismatist - coin collector
Philatelist - stamp collector
Ornithologist - bird watcher
Horticulturist - scientific gardener
Paleontologist - fossil specialist
Fromologist - cheese label collector
You add others!
(End with one boy boasting that his dad collects something, but there isn’t any fancy name for it. The
others guess all kinds of ridiculous things but finally, give up.)
LAST BOY I knew you’d never guess this one! Dad is a BILL COLLECTOR!”
ALL: (in unison) A BILL COLLECTOR!
