ACTING LIKE A TOTAL DIVA
I don’t consider myself a diva! I frequently wear gym clothes and pajamas to the grocery store, and I don’t have to have my make up on or hair fixed to do anything, HOWEVER, when I make something (you know, like a Little Black Dress)–I might just start acting like a DIVA if you’re the guy in charge of taking photos of me.
MY POOR HUSBAND
He’s a Saint. He’s my iPhone, affordable (cough, I mean FREE) photographer. He knows if I made the dress, he’s gonna be taking lots of photos.
WE WERE IN MEXICO ON VACAY
We were in Mexico on vacation when I wore this dress, and there were all kinds of weddings going on at the resort. So in walks ME, to the only place that really worked for photos, which was the center of the resort (surrounded by all the balconies of the room). I’m making my husband take loads of photos down, front and center, for all to see. Wedding parties are walking by, (complimenting me on my dress of course..wink, wink), and I’m making my husband take thousands of photos, and OF COURSE, no one knows I’ve made the dress.
SO IN MY MIND I’M THINKING
So in my mind I’m thinking–you know? These people probably think that I’m a total diva. Because I’m down here in the center of the resort, busting up all the wedding pathways, taking a thousand photos–looking at each photo of course, with total disgust and saying to my husband, “That just will not work.” And he’s straddling the pools and the walkways, shooting photos at every angle, which I keep demanding more and more of, as I’m also shaking my head when I look at each photo.
HOOTIN’ AND HOLLERING
By the end of it, people were hootin’ and hollering off their balconies at us, because I’m posing like I’m all geared up for a fashion show, and my husband is acting like a real photographer. He’s coaching me saying, “Do that thing you do with your face babe?” And by the end of it we were hooting’ and hollering back at our audience, you know, because we just act like that! Everyday is a party, so why not put on a show? Sigh…..I guess I’m a diva!
