Listers, help!

I'm currently a writer in my co.'s manuals dept. An opportunity has come
up doing marketing tech writing for another division. After meeting with
that division's marketing head, I sent him my resume and spoke to my
supervisor, per co. policy.

Shortly thereafter, the marketing head started talking about a six-month
period in which I would split my time between the two jobs, so I could be
sure I liked the marketing writing, which would involve some travel. (I
don't do any traveling now.) I told him I understood what the job would be
like, and didn't think such an arrangement was necessary. But he continues
to push for it.

I feel like I've been put in a bad spot. My current boss already knows I'm
looking elsewhere. And suddenly this job offer is down to half-time,
presumably at my current pay rate.

Any thoughts on where to proceed? My boss's boss may nix the idea (and
most likely will). I feel like there's something going on in the
background at the other division, but am not sure what.

Thanks in advance for your comments.
