FASHION/LUCALUCAa) just can’t understand why they had to get up at noon on a Friday.

b) have just been asked if World War I was fought before or after World War II.

c) have been told they’ve won a dinner date with somebody named Lamar, and they are wary.

d) are actually fashion models, getting “instructions” about the complicated process of walking down a runway, turning around and walking back.

Surprisingly, the answer is d). They really are real models, and they really are getting those “instructions.”

Looks like maybe they should be taking notes…

Poor Lamar. He misunderstood and tried to find the Looka Looka collection. On the plus side, the frames he picked out for his new glasses are really quite nice!

Luca, Luca, wild lactuca
How does your fashion show?
With silver heels
And no meals,
For the zombie models all in a row

I don’t agree. They and Lamar between the whole mess may be able to figure out how to do some kind of note…on some kind of surface….it may take a while…but don’t we owe them that much? Everyone needs an opportunity to grow and given note taking was suggested, we ought to start there.
