It pains me to admit to all of them, so I’ll do it here, I’ll do it once, and I’ll humbly ask you to mock me behind my back.
The best of all might have been yesterday and it’s very uniquely LA.I ran into Ashley, who I’ve known casually for about 4 years now and she was reading a script. So I guess I’ll have to write it like one.
ME: Oh wow have you gone back to work?
ASHLEY: Yeah, I’m just getting ready for tomorrow.
ME: [peeking at the script she’s reading] Heroes? Are you working on Heroes?
ASHLEY: Yeah. I’ve been on it a while now.
ME: Do you work with Jack?
ASHLEY: [smiling] I’m his wife at work.
ME: Oh, what do you do? [thinking maybe she’s his assistant] ASHLEY: I’m his wife.
ME: Right, but what do you do.
ASHLEY: I’m Jack’s wife.
ME: Uh, no Jack’s married to Beth.
ASHLEY: I’m his wife on the show.
ME: [finally getting it] Oh gawd, you’re an actor? [she nods patiently] I’ve got to watch that show!
For the record, I ran home and googled Ashley… she’s way cuter and way hotter in person than the stills I see online. Yes, I’ve been given the first season of the show… no, I still haven’t watched it. I know, I suck.
