I need to calm down. I've been planning this for months. It's going to be okay.
No it's not. Who am I kidding? Tonight has to be perfect. If it's not...
How am I going to concentrate on my work today? I should have taken the day off. No, maybe not. If I were sitting at home, I'd just be pacing and wearing down the carpet. Better to keep my mind occupied. Okay. Here comes a customer. Concentrate. It's not that hard. Really.
"Hello. Welcome to The Muny. I... I mean Burger Barn."
Smooth move there, saying the wrong name... Brilliant. Perhaps I should have stayed home after all. That Mythbusters marathon on TV would have kept my mind occupied. Focus. This will all be over soon. Then life will continue as normal. After tonight...
Who am I kidding? Life won't be normal after tonight. Well, I mean, for awhile, maybe. But not really. Am I really ready for this?
Okay. I made it to The Muny. Good. Step one complete. Hey, why is everyone standing up? And what's that music? The show hasn't started yet. I'm getting weird looks. Oh wait. It's the National Anthem. Whoops. Stand up. Hand over heart. Song over. Sit down. Ignore weird glances. Show beings.
Intermission. It's nearly show time. Well, I mean, the show's half over. But... never mind. Oh no. I forgot... pat my pockets... No, it's there. Good.
The second half of Beauty and the Beast is about to start that means... Oh, I'm nervous. Calm. Calm. Think cleansing thoughts. Think happy thoughts.
Hey, why is there a spotlight on me? Is it... Oh. Oh my. It's show time.
"I've loved you my whole life. I just didn't know it until I met you. I know I'm a beast, but will you be my Beauty? What I mean is... Abigail Noel Jenson, will you marry me?"
Why is it taking her so long?
"Yes, Jacob Elliot Hartman. I will marry you."
