or, Game Night In Chinatown

Simon says:
Put your thumb on your nose.

Simon says:
Jump up in the air.

Simon says:
Pretend you're someone else.

I do someone else
doing an impression of me.

Simon says: show me desperation.

Put your best foot forward.
(No one moves.)

Simon says: show me heartbroken—
but sexy. Think Liz Taylor

in Cat On A Hot Tin Roof.
Good pout, everyone. Nice.

Simon says:
God I love your ankles—

come a little closer.
I consider replacing my

boss with this guy.
He's good.
