"Oh hello there little lady, what's your name?"
"Maa-aaa-aaa-aaa-dooonn-aaa-aaa-aaaa" she bleated with quiet dignity.
"Very pleased to meet you, I'm Sienna. I'll be doing the food styling for the shoot and this is Rebecca, she'll be helping me out." I said, gesturing to my assistant for the day the uber-talented Rebecca Farr.
"Got any greeee-eee-eee-eeen bee-eee-eee-aaaa-aaa-aaa-aaaans?" she asked.
"Not on hand, sorry. Maybe later you can help us out with some carrot tops. We're also making sliders and mini pot pies, but I don't think you'll like those." I said.
"I'll give 'em a trrr-rr-rr-yy-yyy-yyy-! I'm not a picky eee-eee-eeaa-ter." She bleated enthusiastically.
The day went on like that in chatty camaraderie. Just me and Rebecca and Madonna cooking and shooting the shit, like I'd always imagined! Eventually the conversation turned from food to other more general topics. Our favorite shampoos and the latest happenings on Glee. We all thought Gwyneth did a great job with that Cee-Lo song, though Madonna was a teensy bit critical of her dancing chops. By the end of the long day we were all fast friends. I'm hoping she'll stop by from time to time. It was so nice to work with such a convivial instant composter. Tweet This
