I'm nervous

The new library in Boni, Burkina Faso, is going to open on Monday. The U.S. ambassador is going to come. Donkoui and Dounko and Elisee are handling all of the preparations. I am so not involved. The team has done this before (in Dohoun and Karaba) but never under real pressure to get it right, and juggle a hundred details: Where will the guests sit? Who will speak first? What will protocol be? Who will paint signs on the library? Will they buy the children's tables and chairs? Will the girls and boys latrines be finished and clearly marked?
