Drinky

Dan and I are auditioning, together, tomorrow morning for this spot:

My husband was like a rock… woman on stool in studio with

black background and dramatic

lighting on face.

strong and determined… Cut to wide shot of her and her

husband sitting side-by-side. (He’s

very unassuming.)

I knew I could always count on him… Cut to profile of him.

until the drinking took over. Cut back to couple.

It was even stronger than he was. Cut to head-on shot of her.

And it was tearing our lives apart. Start creep-zoom in on her.

Because, as hard as he tried, Super close-up of her.

he couldn’t get me to stop. She looks straight into camera.

Thank goodness he finally called Dissolve back to couple as she

Bradford, and found the help takes his hand.

I needed.

Booyah!

It's like found poetry. Read it as written, with all the line breaks, and you're sure to get the job.

I get a lot of work by swigging from a flask WHILE I slate. Helps me stand out.

HA! The idea of Dan saving an alcoholic reminds me of the time Tim and I had to chase him AND wrestle his keys away to keep him from driving home wasted. Like, "break-a-table" wasted.

Did you know the success rate for rehab is super low, like 5%? Did you know that 90% of rehab facilities use the twelve steps, a faith-based "method?" Now, wanna know the success rate of an addict who quits on their own, with no rehab or Jesus steps? You got it, 5%, same as with it. Weird, huh?

Is this place in Tennessee? I think I drove past a billboard for it this weekend. I expect your face to be on it next time.
