I had a wonderful bit of time off for the blog, so sorry. I had some back trouble that lead to me to being flat on my back. The doctor said he thinks I sprang a muscle somewhere along the right side. A few pain pills, some sleep, and a bed full of toys got me through. My sisters stopped by every day to make sure that I had something to eat and that I was still alive.
See what happened was…
I went down town for a nice little walk. It was better than doing one of those walking work outs that I try to do every morning put can’t because I am not really moving and I’m going nowhere for three miles. The downtown in my city is not far nor is it too big to get lost in or to small that you can see the end from the end. The cold winter wind blew a brisk stiff breeze through my hair, making me wish I had placed on my hat or even better a longer scarf around my neck regardless of how bright the sun was shining bright.
Up one block and down another and I was half way through my three mile walk when I saw Main Street was shut down. The close sign simple stated ‘Close Set-Movie Taping in Progress.” I didn’t know that a filming crew was doing a movie in our town. It could have been one of those nice family movies where the daughter tells her mother how much she loves her as she gives birth to her baby in the mall. I walked up to a few men standing on the corner with coffee in their hand and dressed in security officer uniform.
“What’s going on?” I asked with a very large smile on my face. Maybe they need a last second extra to stand in the corner in a pair of shorts and an ice cream cone, in the winter. The sun that was once shining bright was now covered slightly by a few clouds.
“Excuse me.” A tall handsome man with greyish hair said walking through our conversation. He looked like he got on the beach a few days ago. He quickly turned back towards us. “Would you like to see the set?”
What else did I have plan for the day-nothing but the laundry, the dishes, and a good long nap to rest my tired legs from this long walk. “YEAH!”
He placed his hand in mine and led me up to the scene that was being tape. He talked about the many different ways the actors’ movement was needed to make it seem real. He told me about how the lighting was also a part of the realization of the movie.
Before the scene had ended for the tenth time, the heavens opened up letting ice cold rain fall down upon us. He wrapped his arms around my waist and led me off into the direction of the trailers. I tried to tell him that it would be easier for me to just go home but he either didn’t hear me or didn’t want to hear me.”
“Get in!” He said, opening the door to the largest trailer on the lot. “I’ll get you some towels and dry clothes to put on.”
I hurried inside to walk straight into a tall thin blonde that looked older, but dressed as if she was twenty years old. You should know the type. They are the women who are in their fifties, look as if they are in their sixties, dress as they are in the twenties and act as if they are in their thirties, you see them every day on TV. They wear short skirts, low cut blouses and high heeled shoes.
“You need to be in LA by tomorrow at five.” She looked at me as if I was intruding in on her personal time with him.
“Thank you, Meridian, I will call you when you are needed.”
“Yes, Mr. Union.” She kept her eyes on me as she reached past to gain her umbrella and opened the door. “Ms. Pleasant will be here shortly.” She said making sure that I heard what she was saying.
That is when it hit me. He was a movie star. A STAR!! He was one star that kept a low key life only being seen on the movie screen and in a few magazines stating he was the sexiest, handsomest, hottest or most love man on earth. He was the sexist, handsomest and hottest man over the age of fifty yet under the age of sixty that I’ve seen. Should I get an autograph, get a picture or just be cool about the whole thing. “Be cool.” I told myself.
