And I'll try not to get eaten by bears.


I'm off to North Carolina tomorrow for work. (An aside: I have to get up at 4:30 a.m.!!! How I will pull that one off without biting anyone remains to be seen.)

I've never been there before.

So I'm telling this to a counterpart at one of our organization's affiliates and she says, "Oh, North Carolina's cool. Just watch out for bears."

Huh?

I wait for laughter. There is none.

Me: "Are you just kidding?"
She: "Nope. I lived there for three years and they just sometimes wandered into town."

That's some interesting business travel advice, I have to say.

So I hope all of you lovely people out there in blogland have a fabulous weekend...meanwhile, apparently I'm going to the zoo.

be safe and enjoy the trip. Hopefully you took out bear-related insurance before the trip?

There are lions and tigers there, too, I hear.

Careful out there...and try to have fun!

wow. Just remember, brown bears run and black bears stand up to them. Or is it the other way around? lol

NC and bears were just in the political news last week:
