An Imagined Conversation Between Myself and This Model
Me: Umm, ma'am?
Me: Well, it's just...
Model: I'm kind of busy here.
Me: Yeah, about that. What are you doing?
Model: I'm a model. I'm modeling this dress. Isn't it pretty?
Me: It's gorgeous, for sure. It's just...this is a Mexican restaurant. And I don't see any cameras. And you seem to be really confusing the house band.
Model: The camera guy is on his way. He's running late, I guess.
Model: Oh look, there he is!
Me: That's a decorative cactus.
Model: He did seem a bit prickly.
Me: Did you have one of those giant margaritas that's wheeled up to your table in a re-purposed bathtub?
Model: I had four.
Me: Well then, I applaud you for wearing any clothes at all.
Model: I told you, I'm a model. I'm a professional. Now, will you tell the cactus to hurry up? I can't hold this pose forever.
p.s. Huge thanks to the lovely Lydia for sending me this picture!
