A Photoshoot

Me: Hey, Natalie? I finished Amiga.  Will you take some pictures?
Nat: Sure. Backyard?
Me: Great.

(scene change: Natalie and I are in the backyard, and I am standing awkwardly under a tree looking dumpy in a great sweater.)

Natalie: You look odd.
Me: Odd?
Natalie: Yeah, like...un-natural.
Me: This is unnatural.
Natalie: Maybe if you were doing something.  Pose.
Me: A pose?
Natalie: Yeah. Like, do something.

Natalie: That's not good. Pretend to be doing something. 
Me: Like I see something? Like in the Sears Catalogue?

Nat: No. That's bad too. 
Me: Like if I was pruning a plant?

Or a tree?

Natalie.  No. It's still bad. I actually think you're getting worse. There's glare on your glasses.
Me: Sorry.  Bettter?

Natalie: Now you look unnaturally chipper.
Me: How about this?

Natalie: God you're a dork.
Me.  I know.

(Pattern: Amiga. Yarn: Americo Cotton Flamme. 1.5 skeins. Mods: None. Just knit the longer version, and left off the buttonholes. I don't button stuff anyway.)
