How to save money
Models carry their own bags
Even on runways

Lift awkwardly, with a twisting motion, maybe reach out a bit.

Honestly, could somebody toss them a sandwich?

I’m hoping the dresses can handle the stress and stretching, as otherwise I can see a ‘suitcase (no wardrobes here) malfunction’.

I prefer runways aircraft land on. Can we get a 747 in there? That would liven up the show.

Baz/Lamar 2012 — that’s the ticket!
