Five days ago I was the leader of a cult, today I am being scolded for not taking the trash out.
Five days ago I was surrounded by a team of the most talented and amazing actors and artists I have ever had the pleasure of working with, today I am on my hands and knees cleaning urine stains out of a rug…
