soooo....you're just gonna play me?

*hey pamela, did you get my email?

hold on elinor, i have a bunch of bags. hold on.
pause.
nope...no email.

*oh well i emailed you about tomorrow's shoot. i was just told the model can't make it. spoke to
the magazine...we're going to have to shoot thursday. does that work for you?

no. unfortunately it doesn't. we had been working around this date for the past 3 weeks.
i wish i could. but i have obligations thursday.

*oh no.no. oh, no. we really need you. is there any way you can make it?

i really can't. i am so sorry this has panned out this way.

---pause.

---pause.

---an all out lengthy pause.

well elinor, let me run. i need to get these clothes back to showrooms. i was in the middle of
picking up clothes.

*NO! don't take the clothes back. no, keep them.

pause.

but i can't contribute to the shoot. so, since i can't be apart of it, i have to get these clothes back.

*i know. but maybe you can drop them off for the shoot. just drop them off, and pick them up later.

pause

*don't worry...you'll still get credits.

ELINOR. please don't act like i am so disposable. would you ever ask a photographer
to just drop off their camera and come back to pick it up? you sound crazy to me right now...no.

pause.

that hurt my feelings. what if i don't agree with the work that my name is stamped on? NO!

pause.

DO YOU UNDERSTAND WHAT I'M SAYIN TO YOU? DOES THIS MAKE SENESE?

*yes. it makes sense. i really do understand what you're saying. i do. sorry. i'm just in a bad situation.

....it'll work out.

pause

*so wait, you're definitely not going to drop off the clothes?

......

dead air.
