They waited for their call in the outer hall.
“Shouldn’t be long now,” James said.
Laura shook her foot. “Honey, can you tighten my shoe a notch?”
“Sure!” James bent down and refastened Laura’s sandal. “There you go.” He stood up. Laura’s foot flew upwards alongside his hand and she landed on her backside.
“Oh crap, my watch is caught on your shoe!” James shook his hand, causing Laura’s leg to shake as well. She lay helpless on the floor, skirt wrapped around her waist.
“You’re on!” Basil flittered into the hall, clipboard in hand. “Oh my!” He averted his eyes.
“James, please do something,” Laura yelled.
James tried to unhook his watch from her shoe, to no avail. He then tried to undo Laura’s shoe, but the watch was in the way. “Um, we have a problem.”
“Wardrobe malfunction,” Basil sighed. He flittered out of the hall.
James then noticed the cameraman. “Um, you’re not going to air this, are you?”
“We already did,” stated the cameraman. “This is a live show, remember?”
