Re: the aforementioned photo shoot, yesterday afternoon:
I enter the La times photo studio, and immediately clock a beautifully lit white table.
Me: ….do you want me like — on the table? Or near it?
Photographer: Oh! that’s for the turkey.
Photographer: After you, we’re shooting the Turkey for our Thanksgiving spread.
Me: Haha! How about me WITH the turkey?
Photographer: NO, NO, WE NEED THE TURKEY BY ITSELF.
