Fact: I’ve never owned a T.V., my parents don’t let us watch T.V. much, but I used to spend hours designing T.V. commercials in my head. I had this one idea for a lifestyle commercial in which the world decided to forgo cars for a day. Moms and kids skipped down onramps to join business men in suits and plumbers with toolboxes. Everyone jogged happily down the freeway together with commercial like smiles plastered across their faces. It was lovely. So lovely in fact, that if I’d known their was a remote possibility that I’d get to run down the freeway someday, it would have been high on my bucket list.
P.S. I think I was planning to sell lowfat yogurt.
So when my mom announced that our local neverbeforeused leg of the freeway was opened to joggers and bikers for the afternoon, I got pretty excited. It was just how I imagined it. Families with their bikes, joggers with their buddies, old men with dogs and young couples holding hands. BEAUTIFUL. ABSOLUTELY BEAUTIFUL ADVENTURE.
I wanted to pull out a camera and start shooting.
The moral of the story is, sometimes even your strangest dreams come true. Oh and, obviously I am destined to be a world class commercial director.
It is going to take a week or two for me to get over how excited I am about this.
