He's dying. Mercedes has arrived for their courtship and honeymoon, and you'd think he has died and gone to heaven.
She isn't quite ready to make magic happen, but he sure is. I guess that means I have to put up with his silly grin and long-suffering squeaky sighs until she feels the time is right.
Oh well there are worse things I could have to worry about. We are very happy to have you here, Mercedes.
