Hmm. Should I stay in tonight and Watch Honey Boo Boo or go out to the theatre?
Oh, man, that alarm seems to have gone off early.
What time is it?
Oh, lord it's 7:30 already.
Well, big day today. Our American Cousin opens tonight and of all people the President will be there.
Who knew he was a such a big fan of the theatre?
Better get moving. Shower, shit and shave. Need to look my best for Mr. and Mrs. Lincoln.
Ironic how the Lincolns will be attending the Ford Theatre, eh? I wonder if that young mustang, their son, will be with them?
Hi, Bob. How's it going in the snack bar? Did we get that order of Cheez-Whiz in for the nachos? We did? Great! I want to to be sure Abe's love of cheese is fully filled. I mean he must love cheese. Why else would he be coming to see this play?
And what about the white chocolate and black liquorice? Are we all stocked up? Yeah? That's great. We want him to know the two can live in harmony.
Well, half-an-hour to go until they raise the curtain. The house is filling up nicely. We have the creme de la creme of Washington society this evening. I hope the cast milks this for all its worth. Ha, ha, sometimes I kill myself. Hmm, I wonder where General and Mrs Grant are?
The play's already started. Where's the President and his wife? People will soon be referring to him as the late Mr. Lincoln.
Ah, here they come.
Good evening Mr. President, Mrs. Lincoln. I'm John Ford, owner of this fine establishment.
A lovely day isn't it? Are you all set for an evening of high drama? We have a confederacy of your favourites at the snack bar, Mr. Lincoln. I know you don't want to be a slave to your pet food indulgences but unshackle your hesitations and dig in.
Would you prefer to be seated in the orchestra this evening, sir, or a Booth, perhaps?
And with that shot, history was made...
Shoot on over to Nicky and Mike at We Work For Cheese and see who else met Abe Lincoln today.
