Last night at a church event, my neighbor friend Kathy (who works at the Hoover Dam) had exciting news for me! "Mary! Did you know that your famous? I had no idea how famous you are!" (That's because I'm not!) Well ATandT shot a commercial at the dam and she dropped my name while securing background talent. Apparently it was the regular BG group I work with pretty regularly. My first thought was "Oh no! They told Kathy about how much I yell at them!" But no, to my surprise, they made me sound like a bigger deal than I really am! Kathy went on to say that she was shocked as to how many people on the set knew me or knew of me. She was impressed! Especially when the makeup assistant stated you couldn't open a magazine without seeing my name and begged Kathy to give me her business card.
I HAD to gufaw! If I'm so famous how come I live in a 1600 sq foot track home, drive a Chevy Prism, wear non-designer clothes and my children attend public school? If I'm so stinkin famous why wasn't I the makup artist on this ATandT commercial?
Obviously fame doesn't pay the bills. Hubs said "Honey, your so famous people think you're too busy to work!" Little do they know this" famous" makeup artist is sitting at home in her PJ's surfing blogs praying for her phone to ring!
