Mom, Don't Answer The Door Naked Again


I was working incredibly hard as a background actor on the set of the upcoming thriller Now You See Me. That's why I wasn't blogging for that entire week and re-posting only one story. I'm playing an audience member in an arena scene. The working hours were intense. The past five days were 15-18 hour shooting dates. I was surprised I didn't collapse at all. It was great that I had my friends on set with me. We kept each other together and survived those crazy hours.

Right after I finished working 18 hours on the first night and arriving home at 4 in the morning, my friends dropped me off at my house. I searched my belongings to find out that my house keys were missing. I searched my backpack multiple times in order to make sure it wasn't a joke. It only took me one minute to realize it wasn't. I truly left my keys on the movie set.

My friend told me that I should probably ring the door bell if the keys weren't in there. She didn't have to say it twice. I rang the doorbell and waited for my mother to answer the door.

As much as I didn't want to, I had to wake my mom up, so that she could open the door for me. It was either that or staying at my friend's house. Sadly, she had company staying over around that time. My only choice was to wake up my mother.

She opened the door and a temporary scar just appeared all over my body. It was 4 o'clock in the morning and I was staring at my 43 year old mother, completely nude from top to bottom in front of me. I couldn't believe my eyes. The last thing you ever in your life want to see is your own mother naked. 

As she walked away from the door I thought to myself "Get your 43 year old butt back in your room and put some clothes on. Is this how you normally answer doors?"

Ever since then, I was determined to find my house keys on the set, so that I would never have to see that again. Sadly for me, it took five days to find those keys.
