Oh my, life is hard.

OK, so I've been doing theatre for over 20 years now. Acting, directing, producing, stage managing, scenery, costumes, you name it. I've loved every minute of it. BUT- my current theatrical endevour has to be the WORST ever! I have to spend three nights a week "supervising" the combat coordinator and three other guys while they run around and pretend to pummel the daylights out of each other. None of them are hard on the eyes. The combat coordinator is supposedly "difficult" which I suppose is why this is my detail. I have learned through my work with animals (and actors) that it is never a good idea to poke the bear. So far afore mentioned bear is mostly of the teddy variety. Woa is me, whatever shall I do? How ever will I shoulder the burden of this company of men?

    smack 'em anytime they even look like they might have the inkling of a glimmer of a spark of a thought that in any manner whatsoever resembles an egg of a fetus of a baby of a motive to do what you have told them not to.

    I've never poked a bear.(in spite of rumours to the contrary)..but I have touched a lion. (and for a guy who will probably never climb Mt.Everest[let alone Mt. Millerton Lake]..and CERTAINLY never jump out of an airplane...this is about as adventuresome as it gets.
    Some of you will remember the 3,000 year old lion at Roeding Park's zoo. After the tigers got their spiffy new enclosure, the lion was stuck for a time[til he died] in one of the smaller cages that are seperated from the walkway only by a swinging decorative rope 12 inches of the ground.
    He was sleeping(the poor ol' guy). I told my wife and kids to walk on by....I stepped over the rope..(He was sleeping very very near the fence...) I touched his tail and ZOINGGG! He was standing up in a flash. Whoa. Jump back. Now I worry about my [much more advenurous ] young son and what he will do now that I've set such a fine example.
