The Gorilla has this cute little habit of coming home and saying something like, "Oh, we're going to shoot a little something at the house tomorrow. That's okay, right?"
Most of the time it is okay. People show up and mill around the backyard. I order a bunch of pizzas.
Then there was that one time that I came home from a very long day to find a morbidly obese person on my bathroom floor covered in tomato sauce. That time was not as okay. But that was years ago.
Over the weekend The Gorilla shot a few interviews for a documentary he's working on for the Fall. It was a mellow day, unremarkable in any production way.
Sometimes I stick around and watch, other times I don't. I like to learn new technical things or marvel how different something (or someone!) looks on camera than it does in real life. Most of all, I love watching my husband in his element. Especially when we're at home and he can toss Pigtail around the yard between takes.
What's that saying? It may be a crazy life, but it's OUR life.
