Mom’s an actress

Updated: Feb 25, 2020


Since I’m a mom I’m sitting a lot in cafés.

Maybe more than before.

I love cafés. I’ve always loved cafés, and I’m also an actress, and actors are

known for their love for cafés, since they’re always there because they don’t

have anything better to do.

Actors always look for jobs. They are always unemployed, so they sit in cafés

and talk and feel as if they have serious meetings in order to get a new job.

Actors always look for jobs. They are always unemployed, so they sit in cafés

and talk and feel as if they have serious meetings in order to get a new job.

The other case is they just work in the cafés as waiters.

Did you know that every second waiter in NY is an actor? Well yes, it’s a fact.

So when I became a mom who has a baby and has no job, I felt that sitting in

cafés was more justified.

Instead of making money I spend money. That’s it.

When the baby was really small it was really fun, because he was sleeping all

the time, and I could sit back and relax, drink my coffee and read the paper,

and when he woke up I just took my boob out, fed him and he went back to

sleep again.

But then he grew up. When you wanted to sit and drink , he wanted to crawl,

you wanted to eat a croissant, but he wanted to eat it too, and also the

napkins, and all that was on the floor. The old trick was to give him the little

box of sugars and sweetners, in order to get another few minutes of quiet,

but that didn’t less long too, because you immediately felt that all the table

was filled with spilt sugar, and you could forget from coffee or paper, you

just had to ran away shameful of the mess you left, praying that the waitress

won’t recognize you.

She’s an actress too, buy the way.

One day you’ll tell your kid how lucky he was that his momy was an

unemployed actress that had time for him all day…Since I’m a mom I’m sitting a lot in cafés.
