With some 25+ kids on my little street it is rarely quiet. Today was one of those days that just kicked my butt into the ground and by 4 PM I was done. No sooner did I lay down my kids are running “Dad, Dad get a camera there’s an inflatable Sumo on the street!” WTF I mutter to myself. What does a guy have to do to grab 15 winks?
I go out front and sure enough there was a kid on a skateboard wearing the inflatable Sumo suit with others on scooters and one with a video camera. I spotted Nicki and asked what this was for. Its a video for an 8th grade project over at Arcadia Christian. “What’s it about?” I ask. She can’t tell me as its a secret but it will be a story about a boy whose girl dumps him for being too fat.
Welcome to my ‘hood. Welcome to LA where every-ones project is a big secret until premiere night.
