I straightened my tie
Shot my cuffs
Polished my shoes and tidied my kerchief.
Outside, the air was electric
People mulled about, and I repeated my mantra to myself:
Thank you for the appreciation, thank you for the appreciation, thank you…
I put my hands on my hips in my power pose and laughed into the mirror.
It was all so ridiculous.
Las Vegas, a wedding, and people pretending to be someone else.
It was the perfect event to ditch and get drunk instead.
