On body-image.

[We are walking past a series of shop windows. We pass a bathing suit shop with a display of mannequins in bikinis in provocative poses.]


Pardon? Sorry, kid, did you just say something? It was very quiet.

It wasn’t very nice – never mind.

Did you just say, “Show-offs?”

Yes. [Shifts uncomfortably.]

What made you say that?

The mannequins back there. They are standing in the most ridiculous way – as if they are better than us – which they ARE NOT. They’re so slender, they wouldn’t even have room for their organs if they were real.

That is a very interesting observation.

I mean, honestly. Human bodies have 78 organs – and those mannequins would have nowhere to put them all.
