Simply 6 Minutes — The Audition

I still don’t understand what went wrong. I was on a roll, man. I had all the right moves, you know what I mean? I had them on their feet, for crissake. I was a shoo-in for the part based upon all the feedback I received.

So imagine my shock and disappointment when they gave the lead role to some other guy. What’s his name, Travolta or something like that? He’s a hack, that’s for sure, but he has the look I think. The slicked back hair, you know, and the white polyester leisure suit. Personally, I thought it was tacky, but there’s no accounting for taste these days, is there? And on top of it all, that SOB stole all of my best moves.

But, hey, that’s the way the cookie crumbles, right? They’ll be other parts for someone with my talents and skills, just you wait and see. I’m not going to let that Travolta guy make a monkey out of me.
