Of course it would happen this way. I was literally in the doctor's office waiting for her to come into the room. I woke up with a fever and a very sore throat. As I'm shivering and coughing, my agent calls with the most promising audition yet.
Tomorrow I will read for the leading role in a sitcom pilot also starring Paul Reiser (Mad About You, etc.). It's at 11:00 on the Paramount studio lot. My agent had me come to the office tonight and rehearse it with her. I'm ready for it...wish I wasn't sick.
Oh, by the way...it's a virus. Nothing I can do but wait it out, take vitamins and advil, and chew on ginger (this according to my new groovy Indian doctor-lady whom I really like.)
I also have a Kellog's commercial audition tomorrow and a meeting with a potential personal manager. Hopefully I can convince myself I'm not sick until tomorrow night...
