Today, my world changed.
We had just finished dinner and I was loading the dishwasher when Akemi said: “I wish I had baby.”.
I froze, stunned. The admission had come out of the blue and, to be honest, struck me as shockingly contrary to her general attitude these past seven years. But then again, she’d never been a dog person when she first came to Canada from Japan and now she positively dotes on Bubba. So, I suppose, I could see it. Sort of. Still. A baby. My brain scrambled for a response, finally settling on a lame: “Why?”.
“Because I didn’t have any for the curry.”
“Wait. Did you say bay leaf?”
And, my world changed back.
Taking it back down to Defcon 5.
My baby in her Anna Suit outfit. Tough to top this little lady.
So, today, we sat in on auditions for three of season 3’s bigger guest roles: Solara Shockley, Teku Fonsei, and Adrian Maro. Our casting director, the lovely Lisa Parasyn, did a wonderful job bringing in some terrific talent. It was tough, but we’ve narrowed down our choices and tomorrow, hopefully, we’ll have our picks!
