Believe it or not – this was my dream job interview. I’d been practicing for years during my previous jobs. I was waiting for a dead man’s shoes. It’s not in my nature to wish ill of someone, I was just desperate for a chance. Worse still it was my Uncle Mel I was waiting for – anyone but a relation – how sick was I?! I’d even practiced with him. Master and pupil. Surely I was destined for this.
“Damn Duckth” I went on, “is it the shoot theason yet?”.
I wasn’t going to mess this up. The dialogue built to a crescendo. Then it came – my one chance.
“ya………..what’s up Doc?”
I nailed it. Looney Tunes had a new employee.
