I am 36 years young, pregnant, graying and I hold down a pressure-filled 9 to 5 throughout the week. So, on weekends, I can’t wait to release all the pint-up anxiety through rest, sharing a meal with good friends or trying something new. What I did last weekend was completely unconventional for a self-described Pretty Preggie – a woman use to only the finest clothes and most extravagant taste.
I got the chance to go from pretty to repulsive, from clean to grubby, from living to undead!
It was an opportunity of a lifetime – to be an actress in the short Halloween film Pimps Versus Zombies!
Picture this. Five gaudy pimps in their souped-up pimpmobile get lost in small town inhabited by freakazoid zombies! Because I was just an extra, I couldn’t begin to tell you what else happens.
We zombies never saw the script! But the film’s director took our roles very seriously. We were given “make-unders” by a professional artist, lessons on how to walk like a zombie and notes on how to moan like the living dead!
Now, throughout this pregnancy journey, I’ve had my share of adventures – but none as exciting as this! It was a totally different way to celebrate Halloween – and the most fun I’ve had in a while.
