I will not be in a God movie

I am on vacation and have been for a few weeks now. Because of this, I stay up until 3 am and usually wake up around the 10 o'clock hour.

So this morning at 10 something when the film crew called I was asleep.

My phone rang and I was jolted out of a cool dream. I saw that it was the gate calling so I figured it's either a delivery guy or the Beefcake. Groggy, I answered.

Now I sleep between two very loud fans so I couldn't really hear very well the woman that answered.

Her: Something something film crew in your area.
Me: Okay.

I have no idea why they would be contacting me. Are they really hard up for extras?

Her: Do you think something something God something beautiful something intended us to something something?

Oh man I just woke up and she wants me to tell her what I think God intended? I thought about turning my fan off, but I can hear enough to get this gist and this conversation won't be long anyway.

Me: I don't know.
Her: Well do you think we something something something something something?
Me: I don't know.
Her: Well it sounds like you're busy. Can we come back some other time?
Me: Sure.

Normally I wouldn't mind doing surveys, especially if said survey gets me on a film set, but it was just sort of unexpected and weird to conduct a survey over the gate intercom. I think what would have been better is if the woman had opened with "We are filming a documentary about religion in America and we're looking for people with interesting perspectives to answer a few questions. Do you think you'd be interested in doing an interview on camera?"

Then I could have come down or let her in or whatever. But just coming at me with two random religion questions right off the bat like that made me think of Jehovah's Witnesses and all I could think was DON'T LET THEM IN.

I really do hope they call back because I honestly wouldn't mind. I just think when you're asking such incredibly personal questions you need to buffer it a little. "Hello, what do you think God intended for us?" is a little forward, don't you think?

Oh well. I may have missed my opportunity to be in a movie. I'm sure there'll be another one soon. They're shooting a Monk episode down the street tomorrow.
