“Anyway, so I’m waiting at the parking lot. Talita is making a mess of her meal, I have this terrible headache and I haven’t heard back from my agent.”

“What did you do?”

“I snapped. I snapped so bad Talita laughed at me. I went on with my snapping some more just to entertain her. I call my agent and he doesn’t pick up. I leave a message in his voicemail firing him. He calls back immediately and asks me to talk it through. I’m done with him and everyone, so I tell him to never contact me again.”

“So?”

“The next day I leave my girl in the nursery and call Samantha. She says she’ll take a look at my resume. That same day I had three auditions to go to and she had settled my paycheck for the sitcom.”

“Samantha is like an angel.”

“I know! I’ll be forever thankful for what she did. So, I guess I’m going back to the stages and have to start rehearsals for the show.”

“I’m so proud of you.”

Gloria grinned and took a sip of her tea. 

“So? Are you ever going back to your roots?”

“You mean theater?”

“Yeah.”

“Um… I’d like to. The show has me busy and then the promotion of the movie starts next month. I do want to go back.”

“Listen, you should do it. The show can handle your schedule, that is in fact pretty dull if you ask me. You should start auditioning for the summer, when you’re free.”

“Do you think so?”

“Absolutely! Just give it another try. Everyone would love it if you went back, people like you and you’d be busy and not thinking about-”

“Don’t mention it.”

“See? No one wants to think about that, including yourself!”
