An Albatross

“A movie about us sounds exciting.” Plucky came over as soon as I forwarded her the email from the agent. “Are you going to write her back?” “I don’t know,” I replied. “Right now, all of this has me overwhelmed.” Plucky thought for a minute. “A movie about us is the opportunity of a lifetime. Let’s talk about your doubts.” We both knew what she was getting at; we had discussed it many times. Anyone who has read my posts knows that my father used to tell me I would never amount to anything. The agent’s request for a treatment was presenting an opportunity, and once again my father’s voice was holding me back. I asked Deadpan why someone would become a storm chaser; he said it puts a roof over your head.
