Walk a Mile in My Shoes
(Natalie's Perspective)




Jeremy is sitting at his desk, when Natalie sneaks up from behind.

There's my sweetie.

Natalie: Do you know what today is?

Jeremy: Tuesday.

Natalie: Do you know what else today is?

Jeremy: February 6.

Natalie: Right. What else?

Jeremy thinks for a moment.

Jeremy: Oh, yes. It's Waitangi Day.

Did he make that up?

Natalie: What?

Jeremy: It's the holiday celebrating the anniversary of the treaty signed by New Zealand's Maori chiefs and the British government. I think it was signed back in 1840. Let me double check the date.

Jeremy clicks the mouse on his computer. Natalie puts her hand on top of his.

We're going to work on the right answer.

Natalie: You don't really need to bother with that.

Dana and Casey walk by the two.

Dana: Good morning, Natalie and Jeremy. How are you two doing?

Natalie: Doing great.

Hey, Dana looks fabulous and Casey looks jealous.

Jeremy: Ditto.

Dana and Casey continue walking by.

Casey: (to Dana) Hey, Kevin comes back today, doesn't he?

Jeremy: Sounds like Casey is once again curious about Dana's personal life.

Casey loves Dana, and Dana loves Casey. But that's another subject.

Natalie: You didn't answer the question.

Jeremy: What question?

Natalie: The question on what today is.

Jeremy: I thought I already answered that.

It was a wrong answer.

Natalie: You didn't answer correctly.

Jeremy: But it is Waitangi Day.


Natalie jumps up and down.

Natalie: Noooo! What is one week from today?

Jeremy: The day before Valentine's Day?

He's so close!

Natalie encourages Jeremy on.

Natalie: What else is happening on that day?

Jeremy snaps his fingers.

Jeremy: The AARON Awards?

Natalie throws her arms in the air.

He got it!

Natalie: Yes! We are one week away, baby! One week away from victory!

I get to hold that trophy in my hands and thank everyone who has been instrumental in my life.

Jeremy: Natalie, you should consider it an honor to be just nominated and-

Natalie: I do! And when I win, I'll have so much honor, you'll need-

Jeremy: I see your point.

Aren't you proud of me?

Natalie: Do you?

Jeremy: Yes, I do. And I am very proud of you.

That's my sweetie.


What the hell?!

Jeremy and Natalie look over and see JoAnne and Dan standing at the broken copy machine. JoAnne is wincing in pain and shaking her hand toward the ground, while Dan is trying to console her- which he isn't doing very well because he is laughing.

Natalie: Are you all right?

Jeremy: Jo, you okay? It sounds like you shocked yourself.

JoAnne: Ungh. I'll be all right. (to Dan) This is not funny. I'm in pain here.

What do I do? What do I do?

Dan is gasping for breath between laughs.

Dan: I... I'm sarrr-eee.

Dan starts laughing again.

JoAnne performs a roundhouse smack on Dan's arm, and he tumbles to the floor.

Dan: (laughing) Ow. Ow. I'm sorry.

Jeremy: Be careful there, Jo. We don't need you getting hurt here.

Natalie: Dan, on the other hand, is a different story.

We'll get him later.

Dan continues to laugh on the ground as JoAnne storms off.

Natalie: Will she be all right?

Jeremy: I think she'll be fine. I'll check with her later.

Natalie: Okay, Jeremy. I'm going to check to see what's going on with Casey and Dana.

Natalie takes off for Dana's office. As she turns the corner, she runs into Casey.

Natalie: Casey! What's up?

It's Dana.

Casey: Nothing, Natalie.

It's Dana.

Natalie: Are you going to tell me, or am I going to have to find out from Dana?

It's Dana.

Casey: There's nothing to report other than Kevin is just so perfect.

Natalie: Hang in there, Casey. I'll take care of it.

Natalie jogs toward Dana's office.

Casey: Natalie. Natalie!

I'm on a mission. They will get together.

Natalie raps a few times on Dana's door, and she enters.

Natalie: Hey, Dana.

Dana: Good morning, Natalie.

Something's on your mind.

Natalie: You already wished me good morning.

Dana: I did? Well, I'm wishing you good morning again, Natalie.

Natalie: What did you do last night?

Dana: What? How-

Natalie: Kevin was involved, wasn't he?

Dana: I'm here less than five minutes and... hey, how did you know about Kevin?

Natalie: Dana, you fail to remember that I know all and see all, especially when you are transparent as yourself.

Dana: I don't want to talk about it.

Good mood when you came in. Bad mood now. She's feeling guilty over Casey.

Natalie: Okay, great. We'll talk later.
