Having all but given up on being able to visit with Matt, I called Josh and asked him if he’ll like to get together. He had plans in the afternoon but would somehow fit a visit in with me. Talk about Cat’s in The Cradle… The scheduled meet time would be 9am in Newport Beach rain or shine.
I began my drive north; all the while thinking of the soap opera script I’d market to television producers. I have an incredible gut wrenching plot for my latest soap opera. How’s this, a man loves his children and others and he tries to do what he can for them and still they feel slighted. I bet a season or five of episodes could be built around this premise alone. It can be set in Laguna Beach where I am standing now.
I really don’t want to give away it all but instead of having the lead characters being a wealthy plastic surgeon and a wife with a drinking problem, the guy can be living in a RV. He so he can give to those he cares about. Of course, there will be many plot twists and conflicts. I think a great name would be One Life to Live. What’s that it’s taken? How about This Too Will Pass?
