The Hog Blog: Sally’s Film Debut
I have to say I’m a little “p.o.’d” (piggy offended) that no one told me about the film shoot that happened last Tuesday. The first I knew of it was when I was waking up from a nap (a girl has to get her beauty sleep) and heard someone yelling my name. Now I get this all the time. My notoriety has spread far and wide, and fans often drop by to say hello. Well, it turns out that it was a 9-year old actress waving some grass around. I finally pieced together what was happening from snippets of conversation. Laila had been on a tour with my own Matt Mattingly, learning about geography and colonial history in this part of Maryland, and meeting my gal pal Tricia, who was in costume for the occasion. It was the end of shooting, so I didn’t have time to even powder my nose. After they left, Matt said, “Wasn’t that little girl cute as a button?” I went into a piggy pout — no, it was more hog hysterics. “Why didn’t you tell me? I should been a main feature instead of a mere afterthought!” All he said was, “Oh Sally, don’t get your bristles in a bunch. The final film will be all of five minutes, and my guess is that you’ll make the cut. You always do.”
So, my adoring fans, I will keep you posted. And if there are any feature film producers out there looking for a sassy hog, come by and see me some time.
