Friday February 2nd
I see this Facebook post that says" looking for non union or aabp adults to work on February 5th downtown"
That night I decided to connect with the poster and send them an email that I was interested. Few hours later I get an email back confirming that I have been approved and will sent additional information soon.
Here the catch! I work fulltime and didnt' know I would able to attend.
Saturday Feburary 3rd
I still didn't know how I was going to pull this off!
Sunday February 4th
Superbowl Sunday I get sick! seriously sneezing, headcold the entire works.The minutes and hours pass and at around 10:00pm I email and say I am available! Of course I still had no ideas if and how I could make it.
I packed a few clothes that night and brought them with me to work.
Monday February 5th
I wake up and still feel sick and little groggy. Start my morning journey to work still with no idea on how I am going to make this happen.
I get to work and my manager ask how I am doing and I say no very well. Next thing you know he says "feel free to go at 11:30am if you still not feeling well" I respond with "very much appreciated" inside I am saying to myself. "WOW!" did that just happen!
At 11:30am I leave and run to the bus stop. by 12:15pm I reach Osgoode Station, I run to Metro Hall and use the bathroom to get changed on the 3rd floor. (been there alot for various events)
I run downstairs and start my walk on King Stree West. I reach 325 and its Forget About It restaurant. I walk inside and the cast and crew are having lunch. Submit my paperwork and have lunch with everyone.
It was great to see few friends that I have been on in previews show in recent years at the shoot.
It was quick 2 hours and we were done!
