Chelsea feels as if she is wearing an invisible halo as she walks down the aisle of the church.  She loves being an acolyte and bringing in the flame to light the alter candles.  But then, the flame goes out!  Chelsea cannot stand being less than perfect.  When she joins the bell choir and rings the wrong notes, she can't believe that no one notices.  Why does everyone seem to forgive Danny when he does naughty things but not really notice when she is perfect?
