Two teenage girls on Bazoocam lickslap. Last week we were in the studio recording a promo video for Baby Fabio’s fashion line, an outfit I’d bought specially for that occasion. The producer asked us to come up with some really clever one liners and I was ready.
Where everybody knows only one accent?
“The bad news is the girls are from Florida and it’s winter in New York.” As they started to sing ‘We’re Off To See the Wizard’ my two teenage girls on Bazoocam lickslap jumped in together.
“Los Angeles is so freezing!” “We’re going to have to put these together!” “We can’t drive through the snow!” “Oh no, the bad news is…” they continued,”…we have to drive up the state border, do something strange, like eat a hamburger, and go through the swamps.” ‘I’ll help!’ said Dorothy, who’d been taking her two teenage girls on Bazoocam lickslap around the studio. “How about this: ‘The girls are making a difference in Los Angeles.’ ” I got a laugh out of that.
The girls can sing, they’re both born and bred New Yorkers, they’re with friends from Barbados and Trinidad, their all-American clothes are in good shape, they’re going on a Caribbean cruise, they’d done a British Maid’s training course, and yet here they were now, almost on their own, in a country where the language doesn’t come easy, where everybody knows only one accent, and one way of moving. It wasn’t their fault!
Surrounded by good-looking guys
They found themselves surrounded by good-looking guys from Barbados who spoke as if they lived in Cornwall. They moved into Trinidad, who were all Bermudians. They moved into Jamaica, where they were from but had moved elsewhere because they didn’t quite fit in with the Jamaicans. They met American girls from Dallas. Then they found themselves in Manhattan, down there in the Lower East Side, together with the Jews, and although they were wearing yarmulkes (and I say they were wearing yarmulkes because that was their hair style at the time), they didn’t know what that meant either.
Now they had Miami as their ultimate destination, but instead of singing and dancing, they had to pose for pictures in front of their very first set of Bazoocam lickslap, which they’d bought from an old lady in Oklahoma who lived by herself and didn’t have any friends. What would happen when they arrived? Would they look as if they’d just got off a real-life movie set or were they going to take refuge in their costumes?
The Caribbean cruise, that were better, and they stayed on until the end of May before the promise ended, when they were scheduled to return to New York. They flew home, the promised land they’d so much admired turned out to be the hellhole of their dreams.
Grown up to be a beautiful and very wealthy person
This time, however, they did not meet Barbados-Americans, not so much as a single beach-ball. They did travel to the Caribbean, though, and did visit Barbados and Trinidad, just as they’d promised they would. They’d met the twin sisters from Barbados and gotten to know them well, and they were from a well-to-do family and the little girl from the West Indies had grown up to be a beautiful and very wealthy person. All three girls on Bazoocam lickslapwere smart and experienced, and they had a terrific rapport as a group.
Then they returned to the United States and the three young women from Barbados started their own company, talking about “a great thing called Brand-Girl.” And on it went for some years, mostly harmless fun, until it wasn’t anymore, but these were good girls and I thought they’d been really great.
