What shame! What ignominy! I'm not sure I can ever show my face in public or private or among hallucinated voices ever again... There I was, so haughty and full of myself, exultant in my victory, thinking the whole time during production that I alone had been cast as the lead in the exciting, groundbreaking DARBY O'GILL AND THE LITTLE PEOPLE II: METHPOCALYPSE!, when in fact, as I found out during the well-attended screening, that all along I was a bit player billed far down the credits as "Anonymous Terrified Hot Bitch From The 70s #5." I was more mortified than if I had been Courtney Love turned down for the role of Nancy Spungeon, after she had seen her own lackluster acting thrown into sharp relief onscreen as a second banana she had originally esteemed herself as better than. At least she still has her hubris, delusion, and self-righteous indignation, whereas I now find myself bereft of every comfort.
Oh, painful reality! Oh humiliation!
