“You can’t put it there!” she shouted. I looked over at my frustrated friend as I dropped the heavy post driver from over my head.

“Why not?” I teased. I knew why not already but playing dumb with her had become an entertaining art form.

“Good grief, did you even read the rules from the county?” she grumbled as she walked towards me. “Obviously, there is a huge concrete something right there and an electric pole and it is not anywhere near fifty feet from the roadside.”

I laughed, “I know. I just wanted to see if you would correct me.” I said tossing her my best innocent eyes. “So glad I was wrong.”

“Quit playing. I don’t want to be here all day and it’s starting to rain. Let’s just get this sign up.”

“I thought you would be in a better mood, I mean after all it is your big debut event.”

“I know, I’m sorry. I just didn’t expect to be doing all the legwork myself and what if I mess up or forget the words or trip or—”

I interrupted before she really got on a roll. “Or do great or fulfill a lifetime dream or change someone’s life with your words?” I finished for her. “Why do you constantly convince yourself that you are not worth this opportunity? That you are not enough?”

She stared back at me through raindrops, tears filling her eyes. “What if I’m not.”

I stared right back. “But what if you are.”
