Surely you have sometimes wished you were two people. Artist Gail Gorlitz can help you work out that problem with a course on creating your double as a life-size soft sculpture pillow. It will take you eight weeks to learn the process, which starts with the fundamentals of 3-D design and continues through your own people pillows as you are or as you would like it to be. Gorlitz promises that you don't even have to know how to sew a stitch, need not have ever held a paintbrush in you hand. And with your people pillow, she suggests, you can sit in you own lap - or have an extra lap for children and sweethearts - or watch TV while you go to the movies, maybe manage to show up at the office while you are vacationing in the sun. And, since there is a special course for teenagers, they can be home on time while they are still out on the town.
