trash cans.

Quique is the perfect model. He is smiling and complacent and utterly uncomplaining, even when I take one look at his shirt (on the day I let him pick his own clothing) and force him up five flights of stairs to change it. He wears the slacks I ask him to on 90-degree days, and dutifully packs his duffel at a moment’s notice when I announce to him that we are entering an art show and I need him to meet me in a wolf costume on campus in an hour. He walks there. He dons shoes he reserves for special occasions – because they are expensive and cream-colored and completely unblemished – and treads cautiously through the weeds in them so I can get that one elusive ray of sunlight to illuminate the shot. On a good day, he packs his Abercrombie-worthy intensity into that steadfast gaze.  If I’m luckier, he shaves. Oh, and he never grumbles about posing next to trash cans.

    I can see Matt complaining. Now i feel like I have to compete with Quique for Miel’s Top Model or something.
