“And what will you be performing for us today?”
“Song of the Clown”
“Alright, go ahead.”
“DO RE MI FA FA FA FA FA MI MI MI MI RE RE MI RE SOL MI MI MI MI MI MI MI SOL DO RE MI FA FA FA FA FA MI MI MI SOL SOL FA RE DO GO TELL”
“Um… we’ll call you. Thanks.”
It was horse_ebooks’ 5th audition that week. Being an aspiring actor was taking it’s toll on him. He hadn’t had steady work for months now and, despite all of his ClickBank Ads, he wasn’t sure if he could pay rent that month.
He sullenly trotted out of the casting agency onto the sunny Los Angeles street. If he hurried, he could catch the bus. As he was about to cross the street, a familiar voice called out to him.
“Horse_ebooks! Whats up man?”
It was his old roommate.
“Hello my friend…” Horse_ebooks paused for a second, trying to remember his name. “Gary”
“Long time no see man! Heard you had an audition today. How’d that go?” Steve asked.
“it was absolutely useless. Thanks”
“Whoa, that bad, huh?”
“I don t know about you, but I sure as heck don t want to look like a strange dude”. Horse_ebooks looked down at the ground.
“Thinking of giving up on your dream? I did a few months ago and I’ll never forgive myself.”
“LEARN TO FORGIVE YOURSELFFFF” Horse_ebooks yelled. He didn’t like seeing anyone like this, let alone a friend.
“The fact of the matter is, being a famous anything is overrated. I’d rather make money doing something I really love, without all the attention.”
Horse_ebooks pondered this for a minute. “It s a FACT - Most Doctors, Nutrition Experts , Celebrity Chefs and Best Selling Authors are DEAD”
“Yeah!” exclaimed Gary “You know what? I’m done with this whole Hollywood thing! Let’s you and me go out there and do something that matters.”
Horse_ebooks looked behind Gary and saw a sign directing drivers towards the Los Angeles Airport. A smile came across his face. He looked back at Gary.
“Get ready to fly helicopters.”
