A Bunburying Guide
by Wylie Morton
What is Bunburying? Why would someone do it?
How does one do it?
-Have separate phones and phone numbers for each identity.
-Have the dual identities' have very different personalities, so no one suspects.
-Dress differently when changing identities. Fake facial hair would really help, though if you use that, make sure the real you shaves.
These methods are for ease:
-Share the secret with one person, so you don't have to lie to everyone.
-Don't get too deep in either identity, such as involving the law. Eventually, you WILL be found out.
These methods are for staying on track:
-Have a very good memory. You need to remember what one identity says and does and what another doesn't.
-Write things down so you don't make a mistake such as scheduling two things on the same date.
What problems could a Bunburyist face? How can they be avoided?
Remedy: Have the 1 person who knows bail you out. Check in as your real self without your disguise and don't allow visitors.
P: You lose something very important, like your schedule.
R: Before you leave a place, make sure you have everything.
P: A pet may recognize you even after you changed via smell.
R: Don't get involved with pets. If you do, mask your scent with lots of cologne or bad smells.
P: You may wear something for the wrong person or your disguise is damaged.
R: Double-check yourself before you see them. The one who knows could also help with that. Fix your disguise if necessary.
P: You may forget something.
R: Write things down! (Duh!)
P: You may get caught changing.
R: Lock the door.
