Soaked

What did you do today?

I stood outside and pretended to yell and cheer.

It kinda looked like this — I was with a group of people miming mass excitement in a commercial shoot in Brooklyn — but nothing else was remotely the same.

See the blue sky in that photo?  We never saw that today.

It was all grey clouds and showers…and often heavy showers.  And on this particular shoot, we had nowhere else to go.  No comfy, dry holding area for us.  So we had to stand around outside, huddled under umbrellas, waiting for the rain to pause to get the shot.

Think about it. We had to stand outside — stand — in the rain for 10 hours.

Acting is so glamorous.
