An Imagined Conversation With This Model
Model: Hey, can you help me for a second?
Model: What does it look like I’m doing? Me: Ummm … stretching your quadricep?
Model: No! I’m practicing for my improv class. So what do you think I am?
Me: A flamingo?
Me: Someone who just got punched in the arm?
Model: No! No! More creative!
Me: Kate Moss in a Calvin Klein ad circa 1992?
Model: Wrong! Try again.
Me: Ummmm … are you lifting a bale of hay?
Model: What? No. Why do you say that?
Me: I don’t know, with your arm hanging so low and your leg up I can kind of see it.
Model: Do people even lift hay anymore? Don’t they have machines for that?
Me: Oh, yeah, I guess they do.
Model: I’m sitting on an invisible stool!
Me: Oh now I totally see it!
Model: No offense, but I’m really glad you’re not my improv partner.
