becoming a demon seems like a good career option
While I was hanging around up there waiting for the shot to be set up, I felt myself drop by about a foot and I thought oh my god my luck is running out, this is it. So I called down to the floor manager, ‘excuse me, I just felt the wire give just a little bit, and when I come down could you just be sure that you really let me down easy.’ I heard the word go back along the length of the studio, ‘Joe when she comes down, let her down easy, let her down really easy.’ At which point I dropped like a tone of bricks to the stage, and there was this odd silence and I let fly with a few Anglo-Saxon four letter words, which Disney had certainly never heard before. Then Joe’s voice from way at the back of the studio yelled, ‘is she down yet!’
