Cyrano is a soldier with quick wit. She has heard many, many comments
Juvenile: that’s because I nose best. Culinary: that bell pepper must be good for cooking. Complimentary: you smell really good. Respiratory: your nose is so big there is an echo when you inhale. Polite: excuse me, you have a face on your nose. Early 2000s: your nose is so large, even Dora couldn’t explore it. Medieval: when I'm laying down it works as a sundial. Fashionable: it's hard having a big nose; all my pullover shirts have stretch marks. Recreational: I sniffed cocaine five months ago. I’m still waiting for it to get into my system.
(CYRANO becomes serious.)
Or there’s optical: I can’t see past it. Global: neither can anyone else. Ironic: I can’t rise above it. Social: no one will let me. Truth: I’m more than my nose. Truth: no one believes that. Truth: I don’t believe that.
