That attempted smile gets me. That one non verbal gesture sent a telepathic jumble of words into my brain.
Hi miss mom. I could have been you. I could have been buying Dino chicken for my kids if I didn't spend all my time dedicating it to my craft of acting. The days slipped into years that slipped into a decade or two. I still get calls from my agent...Occasionally. But I know that my breakout role is coming soon. So now I'm going to pay so I can get out of your way and go back to my apartment to wait for the phone to ring. Vodka and cat food. It gets me every time.
