Double Take

Someone recently asked whether I was on vacation. The answer depends on whether being laid off counts against your vacation time!

You see, we were recently in production for a new post all about grizzly bears. We had hired the stunt doubles and everything, and were beginning to figure out how to best shoot the scene. In fact, here's a picture of me attacking the bear:

As I said, we had already hired stunt doubles - for both me and the bear. The one on top is my own stunt double, and the one below is playing the part of the bear.

Sadly, this "bearish" economy kicked in, and due to some budgetary limitations we never were able to film the scene in full costume.

I might just have to start earning some extra money on the side...

Hey, maybe I'll become a stunt double! After all, my double sure does get to see a lot of action: He spends all day walking around on all fours, putting things in his mouth, getting fed big meals, napping... in short, all the things I would normally do. I think the owners even take him out racing, because he's often carted off in the van and he comes back very tired.

That's a great idea. Why didn't I think of it sooner?

Oh, I know... because he probably did!

Waitaminute... The double is taking over everything, isn't he? How did I not catch onto that?

He'll probably even have his own blog soon if I don't regain control!

    Smarty - I worry about you, haven't seen a new post for a while. Are you OK?
