Mosquito Skit [Two scouts walk onto stage, pretending to be hikers.] SCOUT ONE: “Here’s a good spot to pitch our tents!” SCOUT TWO: [Pretends to look in his pack.] “Oh, no! I forgot my tent!” SCOUT ONE: “Well, guess you have to sleep on the ground. Good night!” [Both SCOUTS lie down and pretend to go to sleep. From off-stage come the MOSQUITOES, buzzing loudly, who proceed to go to SCOUT TWO and sting him. SCOUT TWO wakes up in a fit.] SCOUT TWO: “These mosquitoes are terrible! Hey, switch places with me!” SCOUT ONE: “No! Go back to sleep!” [Both scouts lie down and pretend to go to sleep again. From off-stage come the MOSQUITOES, who proceed to go to SCOUT TWO and sting him. SCOUT TWO wakes up in a fit again.] SCOUT TWO: “Aug! These mosquitoes are eating me alive! Please give me a turn in the tent!” SCOUT ONE: “Oh, all right! If it’ll get you to let me sleep in peace, let’s switch!” [SCOUTS ONE and TWO switch places and lie down to sleep. MOSQUITOES come buzzing back on-stage and make their way towards SCOUT ONE, who is now sleeping where SCOUT TWO had been. As they get close, one MOSQUITO stops all the others.] MOSQUITO: “Wait, wait, wait! We already got this guy the last two times! Let’s the get the other guy instead!” [MOSQUITOES then proceed to attack SCOUT TWO, thinking that he was SCOUT ONE.]
