One of the perks of working at a TV station is that my kids occasionally get to help out as "extras" when we are shooting new spots. The kids have fun doing it (we've been to the aviary, aquarium, and even the ice rink for previous spots) and I enjoy getting to see them on-air.
Anyway, their latest adventure in television production work was for a pretend birthday party. The kids had fun eating way too much cake, ice cream, and rootbeer. With all the sugar that was consumed, I'm hopefully we came out with enough good footage to make the spot.
Anyway, so when they are rich and famous television stars (and supporting me in my old age) you can say that you knew them first!!
