She wanted me to be a Модели

Yesterday, Lisa was so nice and took us out to eat at The Cheesecake Factory.  The food was very, very delicious.  I especially loved the avocado egg rolls.  When we arrived at the restaurant, the entrance was packed full of people waiting to get a table.  We were told that it would be about an hour wait. We walked around the mall a little bit, and the baby started to get a little fussy, so Katie went to the super nice bathroom in Nordstroms to feed her.  I was sitting in a nice armchair outside the bathroom, waiting for them to finish.

While I was waiting in that chair, a girl with a Russian accent walked up to me and said, "Excuse me, but how tall are you?"
I replied, "Huh? Oh, um, around 5 foot 9?"

I was having flashbacks of the girl trying to do my nails.  I wasn't sure what this was all about.

She said, "I'm run a modeling company in the area and you fit the profile of the person we are trying to look for.  Would you be interested in being a model for us?"

I'm not really sure what the profile was they were looking for.  A skinny, pale guy with glasses?  Something seemed a little fishy. Although, I do have some experience as a model.


Pretty good, eh? They've kept me in that header for Independent Study for over two years now and through many different layout design changes.  Must be because I look so sharp.

I told her that I wouldn't have time for that, but thanks anyway for asking. You can't help but be flattered when someone asks you to be a model.

She was a little strange. She just kept circling the top floor.

I am sure you are still on because you are the most awesome student they ever had, and they want to remember you forever!! :-)

I am so glad you provided a link to the fingernail post. I can't believe I missed that one! Laughed till I cried. Bryan, you don't give yourself enough credit. You are very handsome.

So out of curiosity...how often do you go back and check to see if your picture is still there?

I just went and read the finger nail post. Hilarious! I might have to do a craft today in honor of you Bryan.

Bryan Lewis said...

Polly - I usually only look at it maybe ... once a year? And what kind of craft would you dedicate? An Emory board? Ha!

Lisa Lou said...

Yeah. It was funny that she was just walking around Nordstroms. Sketchy. And it was totally obvious that we were all staring at her when you told Katie and I the story. HAHAHA!!!

Polly said...

Well, I didn't get the craft done...but when I do, I'll put it on my blog and link to yours.

Bryan, we laughed 'til our nails shone. Thanks for that post.

We especially liked the "Don't scream out loud" part from the fingernail one. Hahaha.
