You see, they are filiming another movie in MY town. A major one too. There are 2 very well known stars in it and one is a hunka hunka hunka. But, no names for now. Anyway. I thought to myself ...."Who does he think he is that we just bow to him! I can't even believe it." Aren't they just normal people after all?
Our police force was even out in full gear! We get excited over the little things here. Road blocks were up and all. Full uniform. Serious faces. I was not amused.
Evidently filming had started. "WHO CARES???" , I thought. For the last several weekends there had been all kinds of movie agents/casting people in town. Lines surrounded the city hall. My daddy and uncle even went and stood in line for an audition. And, my uncle got a call back! Children and pets were last weekend. Someone's dog got picked to be in the movie. Plus, numerous children in town got selected for extra parts. So the excitement was already brewing.
Camera crews were everywhere. People strolling along looking important.
Before long the word was out. All of a sudden this was similiar to the scene I saw. Not really but ..........
Then before I could park in front of the library my cell phone rang. It was Becky and she was hysterical. She was on her way to lunch, going the normal way, down a normal street, to have a normal lunch. She stopped at the road block and was disgusted at first like I was to be inconvenienced by stardom. When all of sudden she looked up and directly in "spitting" distance from her window he stood. HE WAS JUST STANDING THERE. He was a real human. He smiled. All dressed in full Navy dress blues holding an officer's cap. And her mouth fell open. He was between takes walking to the next scene sight with the movie directors.
I admit it. As friends we tend to get caught up in excitement together. Becky's excitement is contagious too. SHE SAW HIM! And I didn't. She even got a picture! OK. Since I have gotton home I have loaded my car with my camera and binoculars. I never could stand up to peer pressure.
I am sure by this time next week we will all be sitting in the middle of the block in neighboring yards looking similar to this.
