It was going to be a long day and a half, at least. Angel, Margo and Caroline wanted to shop in Beverly Hills. There was an one-day sale they didn’t want to miss. Angel wanted to buy some new shoes. Margo and Caroline picked up some clothes.

As they arrived in the studio, the director was barking out orders. They hustled past assistants reading over the day’s itinerary. They watched as the male dancers rehearsed their parts. The hair stylist waved to them, calling them into their chairs.

After standing for several hours, dancing and getting their makeup touched up, they finally take a forty-five minute break for lunch. They curl up in the dressing room, drinking from their water bottles and talking in line as they wait for some more food at the crafts table.

Seventeen hours later, the director calls it a day. They blink as they go outside, clutching their bags and wearing some of their new clothes home.
