Dill sent me a picture of himself all made up and in wardrobe and he looked amazing. They dirtied his face and teeth up beyond recognition. Unfortunately for you, we're not allowed to publish any pictures of him in costume before the film is released. It's a colossal bummer because he really did look great. Tomorrow he'll be wearing the same costume and acting in the same role. Not sure what Thursday holds yet.
I think this is just about the neatest thing ever. But on the other hand, why couldn't I have been blessed with the olive skin and dark hair? So jealous. Although, throughout my life I've had lots of opportunities to perform in various capacities, whereas Dill has previously enjoyed one (the play of Johnny Appleseed in sixth grade). So this is fantastic for him. I'm sure he's enjoying it and making lots of great memories, meeting new people and such.
But I'm still a teensy-bit jealous.
Since I can't upload any real pictures of the rising star, I drew one up in Paint. Seriously, I did. This is what he looked like today:
Yes, I really did draw this in Paint. Too much time on my hands for sure (what does a husbandless woman do after her kids go to bed?). Also, I'll be signing autographs after the show.
People seem fascinated with Dill's beard and they ask me the same few questions all the time. These include, "Is it weird to kiss him?" "Does he ever get food caught in it?" "Does it bug you?" "Do you prefer him clean-shaven?" "Does it keep him warm?" Easy enough, the answer to all of these questions is Yes. And more often than not, Unfortunately Yes. Let's just say I can't wait until it's gone! Just a few more days!
