I left for school early today so I could swim, but when I got there, the door was locked. I walked around to the principal’s parking lot, where there’s a door that’s always open so long as the school’s open. On my way I ran into a custodian running a snow blower. “You know school’s cancelled today, right?” she asked.
“Really?” I replied. “Why?” It hadn’t snowed much overnight. We got about five quick inches of snow between 7:00 and 9:00 last night, but no more.
“They’re predicting another seven inches before 3:00,” she said.
“Wow! So that prayer worked,” I said, once she had turned the snow blower back on and couldn’t hear me.
When I got home, I started working on polishing up my screenplay. Eight Mile Below tells the story of a rogue band of sled dogs whose abilities as rappers might be their last hope to get out of the oppressive antarctic. I need to add some finishing touches to the story, which is currently in production. The studio has put together a trailer for the film, which stars Eminem, Brittany Murphy, Mekhi Phifer and Kim Basinger. Click on the photo for the trailer.
