Yesterday was quite possibly the best day I’ve had in a long while.
It all started at brunch, when I was explaining to my friends the details of the horror movie audition I just came from. I was telling them how it’s always so awkward to pretend you are getting killed in an audition situation, being in a small room with a camera guy, pretending you are getting stabbed or whatnot.
My girlfriend went on to tell me about her really awkward audition for “Celebrity Ghost Stories” in NYC. I was like, “No Way! I did that show!” It was quite ghetto, actually. I worked all day and was in almost every scene, playing the “mistress” in the Eric Balfour story, and was handed $50 cash at the end of the day.
Chance went on to explain how Eric Balfour was his first crush EVER, from some MTV show I never saw. I told him his “Ghost Story” was pretty lame and quite possibly made up.
We then had a brief encounter with the birdman and snakeman at the pier. Chance asked the snakeman what the snakes eat, and wondered if they would eat the birds? The man replied, “OHH no the snakes only eat chickens.” Chance said, “Well shit, isn’t a parrot just a gay chicken?” We then got thrown into a 15 minute showcase for the Santa Monica Pier. Way to be a good sport Chancey!
The red bird had a bit of the Bath Salts syndrome. He kept eating Chance’s face.
The topper: Last night, we were out to dinner and drinks, and who walks in? NONE OTHER than Eric Balfour, who we spent the whole day talking about! I introduced myself to him as the “mistress” in his ghost story. Chance professed his love, and Eric Balfour announced that his whole ghost story was completely made up (…like no shit buddy… You weren’t fooling anyone)!
If you have some time to kill, look up that episode. You’ll def get some laughs! I love life’s randomness. TOO FUN!
