An Imagined Conversation Between Myself and This Model

Me: Umm, ma'am?

Model: What?

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.

Me: Right.

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: No!

Me: Really?

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!

Hilarious! Great commentary!

I thought she was saying, "Ay, caramba!"

I love how the first commenter said this photo would be ripped apart on ANTM because I thought it would be the inspiration for a bizarre ANTM challenge. Mariachi band, cactus, four margaritas, oodles of distractions--and go! Be fierce! Don't lose it! Smile with your eyes!

I am going to a Mexican restaurant for my birthday this weekend. I am now inspired to try my darndest to recreate this pic. Stay tuned.

I love how the models are always super intense, and insistant that they're EXTREMELY BUSY.

I mean, I guess they technically are. They're busy modeling.

just be awesome instead said...

Umm...Im distracted by the dress. Where can I find it?

Elise said...

I could seriously go for a bath tub sized margarita...or four.

I feel like there should also be a conversation between the band and the model.

Band leader: Who's this chick? Why is she posing in front of us while we're playing?
Model: Oh, work it, work it, pose, look fierce. I'm so awesome. Tyra should totally pick me on ANTM.
Band leader: Weirdo....

Love your blog!
