Stand-ins

Now I don’t have a face for the movies. I have good cheekbones and my profile's alright but I don’t have a face for the movies. I’m standing in for Loretta Dugal cause we have the same skin color. I’m in a car with this man Mitchell who is the same color as Ian Clarke. Mitchell starts to play like the car is really running and we’re going on a trip somewhere. And even though it’s just a warehouse I close my eyes like we are driving. And even though it’s just lights I make believe I’m covered in sun.
