Weekend Coffee Share: Coffee, Stunts, Babies, Mexican Gangsters…

If we were having coffee this morning, it would happen super early. The past couple weekends it seems that I have been off my normal schedule. However, I am finally back doing what I always do on Saturdays: work! Thus, the early coffee. I would suggest we meet at the new Starbucks they installed at Disney’s Hollywood Studios, because frankly, it is just easier for me.

As soon as we finish our coffee, I will have to head to the Indiana Jones Epic Stunt Spectacular, where I will be in three film shoots today. Funny enough, they are all the same scene. After 26 years, we might get it right one of these times! Hehe… I truly love my job at Disney. Every day, I get to play on a giant playground and get paid for it. In addition, I get to make people happy, 2,000 at a time. It doesn’t get any better than this!

When we were good and deep into our conversation over coffee, I would stop you dramatically. I have some big news. I imagine it would go something like this: Eh em…*clears throat*…”My wife and I…well, we are having a baby!” [Insert HUGE smile here]. We are so very excited over this and can’t wait for this journey to begin!

This would lead me to telling you that after I finish playing on the giant adult playground today, I have to start my daddy duties, the real work. There is so much to be done and only 4 months left. Oh…and to top that off, just yesterday, one of our good friends had her baby 2 months early! This is an eye opening experience. I always knew something like this could happen, but now that I have seen the situation first hand…I realize we are 2 months from her same point and everything seems like it needs to be done super-fast!

Lastly, I would leave you with a funny story from yesterday. I woke up to a text message from a stunt coordinator I work with out of Miami. He was looking for Mexican gangsters for a TV show and needed pictures ASAP. So, at 6:00 AM in the morning I was dressing up like it was Halloween and taking selfies. Let me just tell you that a white guy with a due rag, hat, baggy pants, and white tank top does not really equal gangster! Regardless, who else gets to say they do that? And…who else can blame it on legitimate work? I really, really love what I do!

Anyway, time to run! Someone has to be available to be punched in the face soon… Thanks for your time. Let’s do this again next week?

  1. I realized when i stopped by here before I forgot to say congratulations! That was about the gig being able to play all day for a living, of course. Oh, I guess I should say congratulations about the baby while I’m here 😉

      1. If you do, send a long-distance wave to the north here in Michigan.
        By the time I visit Disney next in 2018, I imagine there will be SB on every block. How would we ever find each other to meet up? 🙂

  2. What an amazing thing that you have such a wonderful and fun job. It’s not like that for everyone. And on the baby front, relax. That baby will need to be loved 24/7. They don’t need much more than that. Yeah, there are a lot of things that make life a lot more convenient with a baby but when it comes down to it, as long as you are ready to love that baby, you’re ready whenever it comes!

  3. Congrats on the baby-to-be!

    I was one of those who had my kiddo early, too—he was 7 weeks early and in the hospital for a while, and I was really unprepared for things. But I had great friends and family, and they were fantastic to us.

  4. A big CONGRATs to you and wife 🙂 Let’s just say that having a child can be full of heart-stopping moments, more heart stopping than stunts. But full of times of immense joy.Trust me when I say you’ll laugh, cry, scream… welll just about everything imaginable, and then some. You’re in for quite a journey — A good one 🙂
