We Made the Short List

A note I received last Friday from my contact at Picture Show Films:

Hi Dave-

I hope you had a good holiday season. I just wanted to let you know that you're on the short list of candidates for the Weber spots we're shooting. Weber is still figuring out exactly what they want to do in terms of the number of spots and the products they want to feature, but they really liked your story. I should know more by the middle of next week.
I had a phone interview a few weeks ago. He's making commercials for Weber and I might get in one. He said if the deal goes down, he pulls up with his crew in an RV and shoots improv style all day while I grill. Is that a cool gig or what? Keep you posted.

And for the last time, I did tell them what I looked like. Brad Pitt and Nicholas Cage made the short list for the stunt double.

Excellent, you're thinking on your feet. I don't think Weber would like Meathenge. I use my vintage red weber to keep my tools dry. Very handy, but not quite what they're looking for, I'll wager.

I don't think they could appreciate the subtlety of the workings of a pitmaster like yourself. They're going after the amateurs like me (who happen to use their equipment).
