Fashion And … Teddy Bears?

Cynthia:  What do you think, Marcy? Should I submit this picture to Effortless Anthropologie‘s Reader Outfits for Sunday?

Marcy:  No. There’s a plant growing out of your head.

Cynthia:  Or this silly one?

 

 

Marcy:  No. You look insane.

Cynthia (suddenly doubtful):  Oh, I don’t know… sigh… those girls are so stylish over there, this outfit may not even be good enough. (perking up) You know, I could –

Marcy (interrupting):  Hey! Are you really posting another hundred pictures of yourself on MY blog again, Cindy?

Cynthia:  But Marcy, this is the fashion part of the blog. I have to post photos of me.

Marcy (indignant):  Why? Why you? Why not me?

Cynthia:  Isn’t it obvious?

Marcy:  What?

Cynthia (gently):  You don’t wear clothes.

Marcy (exasperated):  I know! I’m a cat!

Cynthia:  So what do you want me to do? I’ll post whatever you want.

Marcy:  Ummm… hmmm…  let’s see… gasp…Post a picture of me with my Teddy Bear.

Cynthia:  Okay!

Marcy:  And this poem that I wrote about him.

I love my cuddly friend,
Teddy Bear Ben.
He keeps me safe,
And he’s not an ape.

Cynthia gives Marcy a concerned look.

Marcy:  What? I’m scared of apes.

Cynthia hesitates before posting, looking at Marcy strangely.

Marcy:  POST IT!

Cynthia rolls her eyes but  presses Publish.
