I got a private invitation today. Which is always lovely, and when I feel I'm a good match, I try to always do them. And this was a good match -- maybe a little straight-laced and corporate for me, but that's okay, I can do that...
So I opened the attached script... and it was one line. Hmmm. Odd, but it happens. So I record several takes of that one line to show my INCREDIBLE VERSATILITY, type up a corresponding email, and send it off.
Hours later, I pulled the invitation back up for some reason -- and saw the SECOND ATTACHED SCRIPT. The one with MOST OF THE COPY IN IT. The hell...?? Where did that come from???
Now, of course, come the choices to fix it -- I could record the second script and send it in an apologetic follow-up email... and look like a technological dumbass. Or I could let my INCREDIBLY VERSATILE original audition stand... and look like an illiterate idiot. Such a dilemma.
I elected for the Dumbass Solution. And after all that work, I'm not even sure they even saw it. Meh.
