Extra, Extra!

I had a really fun experience the other day. I'd heard about a need for extras for Southwest Airlines commercials and was like, "Oh, that sounds fun!" so I looked into it. I found it was very easy to apply so I did. Shortly thereafter, I was selected!

I'd never done anything like it so I went into it open minded and with a sense of adventure. I honestly had no idea what to expect. And I must tell you, it was a lot of fun! I now have mastered the "fake conversation" role, the "walking and looking at my boarding pass like I don't know where I'm going" role, and the "walking and talking on my cell phone" role. I'm now a pro at all these things. ;)

I had no idea so much goes into making a commercial, though! In the end, I'll probably just be a body in the background, just a blip on the screen - but, hey! my blip may end up in as many as eleven commercials, and it was an enjoyable experience! :)

Btw, I think
"Oh, that sounds fun!"is going to be my new motto. :P
