Remember how I was called into audition for a Stein Mart commercial a couple of weeks ago and I was SO excited. Well, they never called, whatever.
Simultaneously, I was supposed to film a 15 second TV spot to run on the local Telemundo channel on Sunday for a Real Estate talk show thing. Not at all exciting, but I represent the business and I speak Spanish, so I'm doing the spot.
Yesterday, I am standing in the supermarket when I get a text message and it says: We are filming tomorrow, so sorry for the late notice.
My phone died last month so it erased every ones number and so I did not see that this message was coming from one of the owners of the business, to me it was a random number.
What do I do? Do I stop and think? Do I put 2 + 2 together?
NO! I start jumping up and down in the market, going: OMG Stein mart wants me in their commercial, a NATIONAL commercial.
Do I call the text message person back to discuss details? NO
I call my husband yell in his ear, tell him I might leave him when I'm famous. Then I text my sister, my 2 girl friends and my assistant.
I then call my sister and we GAB about how I am definitely going to need my SAG card and how this is my whole new career, etc, etc, etc
Just then my assistant text's me back: I don't have to be in it right?
You know that expression BURST YOUR BUBBLE- POP!
DUH! I drive up to the house, my husband greets me in the garage and says: What's wrong?
I explain and then (this is how I know it WAS really bad and I looked SUPER SAD)
The HUBS (who from now on will be know as the Guatemalan Chuck Norris) goes:
I have never heard him say awwww, he is SO not the kind of man who says awwww, he's a bad ass Chuck Norris type.
So I'm at working today filming a infomercial for local Spanish TV instead of freaking getting famous with Stein Mart. SUX the BIG ONE!
