So I know this is labeled as a one-shot, but seriously, this feels like the set-up for a really good story. Why is Jim so despondent he's willing to get a few sheets to the wind before heading out to the bar? Why would he be friends with Alan? Why is Pam so upbeat and carefree? (That one's not a complaint mind you) Feels like there could be a lot more to explore is all.
Regardless of all that, the fact that it's Pam who basically flips the switch for Jim is just so adorable. How he's entranced by her from the start and then when they lock eyes for the first time. Just beautiful. Also, that he noted he won the race to get her a beer. I also loved how he came up to her like that. It didn't seem pushy yet at the same time, clearly he's interested in her. And they then just lose themselves in talking to each other for the rest of the night. Yeah, if they have that effect on each other, it's a good sign for things to come. Also love that he's not thinking of doing the whole, "I need to wait three days to call her," thing. No he's going to call her first thing in the morning. Bravo Jim! I don't think you'll need any more liquid courage to help sort things out. Nice job.
Author's Response: I've been convinced to write more with this. There's a lot more that needs to be said especially about Jim's state. What that is, I'm unsure of at the moment haha, but we'll figure it out! I appreciate the awesome review as always!

Okay, I really love this taste of "their eyes meet across a crowded bar and Jim elbows his buddy and says 'see that girl? I'm gonna marry her'" Jam. AND I'm really glad to see you writing again!
Author's Response: Thanks, DJ! I'm having a great time writing myself! Thank you for reading and reviewing!

Ooh… love the title and love this song!! This is fantastic! I love the AU and yet Jim and Pam have that same instant magnetic attraction right off the bat! Can’t wait to read more! I adored the line about Jim not caring about being the first, but wanting to be the last. Amazing!! Please give us more!!
Author's Response: I probably will write more! It was originally a one chapter deal, but the response was great! So now I need to think of how I want to continue it! Thanks for reading :)

Hey, Hi, Welcome back! Please continue to write all the country music-related, bar-frequenting, angsty-Jim fic you can because I love them all. And I'm not even a country music fan. You just always pick good songs. And plots.
Tequila was for college Jim. Well, I don't hate that.
He didn't care about being her first. He just wanted to be her last. Oh it's fine. I'm fine. We're all fine over here.
I hope their breakfast tomorrow lasts until dinner. And then even longer.
Author's Response: I absolutely will. I love writing about country music and drunk Jam. When I wrote the line about her being his last I was like, "wow, that's good." haha. I'm glad other people enjoyed it!
