Beware Saying "Extra" Really Fast

While attending a loud gathering for volunteers of an organization that facilitates arts and crafts programs in local children's hospitals, I was regaling my FUNemployment tales. One item that I listed drew great interest.

Me: I learned to surf, wrote a book, took up photography and, oh yeah! I was an extra in a movie.

Him: You were in an x-rated movie?

Me: Yeah, I was an extra in a movie.

Him: Seriously?

Me: Yeah. I mean only the back of my head was on camera and it was tedious but I got an imdb profile out of it.

Him: Wow, I've never met anyone in porn.

Me: WHAT?! Who said anything about porn?

Him: You said you were in an x-rated movie.

Me: I was an EXTRA in a movie. As in I was in the background. Everyone was clothed. Nothing illicit, except for the acting. This event is for kids!?!

Him: I know. I've gotta get my mind out of the gutter.

Me: Yup.
