The Casting Call

People say couples of different nationalities make the best looking babies. I don't know if this is true because as parents, their own kids will always be the best looking ones.  Suffice it to say, my daughters are, for me, the most beautiful creatures in the whole wide world.

My daughters are Fil-American-Italian babies.  They look eccentric which makes them quite noticeable even in a crowd.  Trips to the mall or the park may sometimes have strangers (agents) who ask us to have aVTR shoot for modelling possibilities.

Two Saturdays ago, I succumbed to the pressure.  I went to a casting call for a modelling agency.  Because it was running for a couple of months, it was the perfect venue to try it out.  I'm sure there will be less crowd.

So I had Pot all dolled up with make-up and hairdo to match.  I was approached by a couple of organizers to say that I have cute kids (Nemo was also with me).  Come photoshoot time (for the portfolio), Pot was the first one to get called in.  In comes to photographer with some instructions. Pot flashed her signature pose - chin on shoulder, too sour-smile - that can never win even just a second of airtime.  In comes the photographer with some instructions. 

What did Pot do on the next few slides?


She covered her face and begged for nap time.

Here's where the story ends.  Now I know... She doesn't like the limelight.
