I have a favor to ask of you, but first I think you should know why I need your help.

I woke up this morning feeling great about today, I was going to get to see 'her' and my heart was racing so madly in my chest that it was almost all I could do to concentrate on the simple act of eating.

Without a sound, I ate my breakfast and drank a second cup of coffee not looking at the clock to check the time even though I wanted to, and then while I rinsed my dishes in the sink glancing at the clock on the microwave my heart jumped up into my throat. Time was moving forward at an alarming rate and there was so much yet to do.

I showered and shaved, singing happily the entire time, I hadn't done that in a long time and it felt reviving to do such a mediocre thing as just sing in the shower. I chose my clothes with great difficulty and dressed for inspection with enormous care noticing that my hands were shaking as I knotted the tie around my neck, then I forced myself to breathe and calm down. I looked at the clock on the night table and knew that calming down was something I couldn't do right now and I danced with excitement in front of the dresser.

I straightened my belt and smoothed the crisp white shirt upon my chest, and with shoulders back and standing tall, was very impressed with my reflection when I had finished. Then my overconfident smile dropped from my face as I realized that a dress shirt and tie was probably over dressing for the occasion, this wasn't a job interview I reasoned, even though it felt like I was preparing for one.
