Waverly: Hi, Everyone and Happy Holidays! I'm Waverly and I will be co-hosting this short holiday theme introduction. This is such an exciting time of the year and we are looking forward to celebrating and enjoying every minute of it. The fun, the parties, the shopping and the photos. You may remember that last year the three of us were fortunate enough to take several photos to share with you. We have a different theme this year, but we'll get to that in a minute. First, my co-hosts would like to introduce themselves.
Dallas: Sure I can.
Taren: Dallas, there may be men here too. You can't leave them out.
Dallas: But I'm interested in the ladies. I'm still single, you know.
Taren: Maybe, but this isn't the Love Connection, this is the Holiday Photo introduction, so you should address everyone.
Dallas (sighing): Okay.
Waverly (interrupting): Dallas, we appreciate your taking a minute to step out here and say, 'hello.' You're such a dear. But we don't have much time, so maybe we should get back to what we're here for. Okay? Please?
Dallas (sounding disappointed): Well, okay then.
Song: Thank you, Dallas.
Waverly: That board with the signs behind us is covering the work area. It's almost finished and ready for us to get started. We don't plan to start until December, so around the first the holiday photos will begin. This year, we won't be in all or even most of the photos. The residents are taking family photos this year. This will serve a dual purpose since the photos will be used for reference on who's who around here. We may not get every resident, but we will get lots of them.
Song: This is going to be so awesome. Waverly, Taren and I are going to be administrative support staff. That means we'll schedule appointments for the families, make sure they have the props they need and just help out with whatever needs to be done for lovely family photos. Oh! We'll also be assisting with poses and things. Dallas is a great photographer, but we'll be here to help him with his creativity.
Waverly: That's right. For most of the photos, you won't see us, but we'll be in the background helping out. I think that pretty much wraps up what we're doing. Did I forget anything?
Waverly: That's right, Taren. Thanks for bringing that up. The good news is that we're definitely getting there and we just need to be a little more patient.
Song: I agree. It's been a while and it will pay off. Patience is a virtue.
Voice from the side: Did someone say patience?
Everyone turns to look.
Waverly, Taren and Song: Hi, Leera!
Dallas (from behind the camera): Hi, Leera!
Taren: We're glad you made it. Will you be making any fashions for the photos?
Leera: Sadly, not for most. Many of the residents have their own clothes they'd like to wear. However, I've recently taken on the challenge of working on fashions for curvy ladies, so you'll see at least one fashion from me. I'm going to widen my horizons and expand on my customer base. I have to think big. But I do provide something, I'll make sure you know and you can let out audience know.
Waverly: Thanks for coming. You can sit with me. I'll scoot over.
Leera sits down next to Waverly.
Waverly: How have you been? We need to catch up. We're all going out to eat after this. Can you join us?
Leera (laughing): I'm doing very well. Yes, we do need to catch up, so I will join you. I'm hungry.
Waverly: Lots to talk about. I'd love to hear more about your current lines and the new one. Sounds interesting.
Leera: Oh, it is.
Song: I want to hear about it too.
Waverly: We'll have time while we're eating. For now, we need to wrap this up so we can go get our grub on.
Waverly: It sure is. I'm in heaven.
Song (speaking quietly to Leera): Do you think at least the three of us can get something designed? We'd really appreciate it.
Leera (speaking quietly): I'll see what I can do. No promises, but I love you guys, so I may make that happen.
Song: Well, Everyone, that's it for our introduction of the Holiday Photo Theme. Stay tuned! On behalf of myself, Taren, Dallas, Waverly, Leera and Miss Jaye, thank you for stopping by.
