some moments last forever- character caricatures

They say that time flies when you're having fun. She wasn't.
"Gosh. What on earth am I doing here?" she thought.
But 'nice' was a thing she did. It's what got her here in the first place.

Sam & Julie. She loved them to bits. But not this much!

"Nice guy," they'd said. "Just do lunch and see what happens."
She could see what happens. Total disaster.

"Kola tonic with lemonade for the lady." She heard his voice to the waiter.
She'd ordered a lime cordial. Nevermind.

"Yes, so as I was saying. I've acquired ten acres of land alongside the
Kayalami racetrack. And all for a song, 'cos the old man says I remind him of his son!" he chuckled.
"And then just this week, my dealer says he can get me prime less 6% for new car."

He was beside himself. She just smiled.

Yea, but instead of a rant about this and thats of dating, I wonder if its possible to tell that at some deeper level its also nervousness on his part to articulate himself properly. Maybe. I mean, he could be an i-specialist. Or he could be just plain nervous.
