My Kevin Bacon Number is 2

December 9, 2013

I just thought you should know. In college I was an extra in an episode of “Touched by an Angel” with Della Reese. Della Reese was in “Beauty Shop” with Kevin Bacon. And that is how I have such a low Kevin Bacon number. I know, you think I’m way cooler now than you did before, right?

So, my roommate in college had a cousin who did a lot of extra work. He told us to come along with him one day. It was a sweet gig. It was right before finals, so we figured we would study during all the sitting around time and make a little money while we were at it (it beats selling platelets)! We did do a little bit of studying, but mostly we enjoyed the free lunch, ate our body weight in snacks from the Kraft Services truck, and messed around. It was so interesting to see how much goes into the filming of a television show, and to see all the logistics of it. Very cool! My parents have the episode recorded somewhere, but it’s on a VHS tape, so very few people in the world have the ability to view it ever again. I consider it a sad loss! But at least I get to tell you that my Kevin Bacon number is two!
