A Question of Determination.

Bill sat and thought for about 12 and a half minutes. He nervously rubbed the side of his nose with his thumb. The loudness of the coffee house seemed to be growing. This is what he wanted, 50 years old and what he wanted was to be able to express himself. What he wanted was to be an actor. Now somebody was giving him his very first opportunity. Somebody who had seen the  head shots which he paid a lot of money for and thought he looked good for the part. 

"So... are you cool with being naked and having ketchup and mayonnaise sprayed all over your body?" the film student asked once again.

Bill continued thinking.
