Friday June 17th - Book 22 - Wow! This production scene has it all: the story of my first bear encounter I had moments before I started, bookmaking in the dark, a shot of Pip the Evergreen Jungle Cat clutching a mouse in his jaws, and a handle.That's right. This book comes complete with a Rainier beer box handle bound to the spine for hip readers on-the-go. And I quote from page four, "Only nerds tuck their books up under their arms." This is, without a doubt, one of my favorite production scenes. Hope you enjoy it too!
PROPS, material costs: $10.30 + (STORYTIME, actual time worked: 3hrs 35min x THE EXCHANGE RATE, based on federal minimum wage: $7.25) = $36.28
This book now belongs to one of the workers at Bumpershoot 2012 who poked his head into my booth, heard my pitch, and enthusiastically declared that he would return on his next break to buy a book. I've heard the old "I'll be back" line from many a potential supporting cast member, but he kept his word. He returned he decided to buy this book before I told him about the bear story. He was jacked when he heard that it had a bear story in it, because he was heading to the wilderness soon. I can't think of a better person to have sold this book to. Best of luck buddy! Long live the bears!
