My Husband is a Field training Officer and his department just hired some new guys. So, last week they did scenario training and I got to help. One day was traffic stops. I got to be the "bad guy" who gets pulled over and we spent the day role playing different types of situations that they will most commonly encounter and how to best deal with them. It's fun because I sometimes get to act like a crazy person and it is also a good reminder of just how dangerous their job is. Not everyone they pull over is a nice, normal, law abiding citizen. Now, getting to the above picture... the scenario was a guy was inside a building shooting people. That's me, I playing dead and, lying on the floor next to my outstretched arm is my dead baby. (Samantha let me bring one of her dolls.) So, the guys are scoping out the hallway. One of the forward facing dudes says: victim in the hallway! I guess Hank didn't get the message because right after this picture was taken his big marine shoe kicked me in the crotch! I was lying there thinking that it was a really rude way to check and see if someones alive when he comes sailing over me and lands on his big marine bottom almost on my freakin' head! He landed on Samantha's doll baby! If it wasn't dead already it would be now. Hank looked really funny sitting there with his big marine feet up in the air clutching his shot gun! The look on his face was priceless and I wish John had gotten a picture of it but he was probably laughing. The rest of the day was interesting but thankfully did not include me getting kicked again, just handcuffed...

All I have to say is wow Kate you are a great actress and I think you should call up Jackie Chans agent and see if they have any openings. Although I believe I would have kicked back, I mean a crotch kick is no laughing matter!!
