SAM&PAM; Ever After

ever after

(SAM)
There is no rule book for marriage but if there was one, one of the first laws would be;
Thou must not marry a musician if thou art a programmer.
But just in case you are stupid enough to fall in love with one, then you must obey this other rule;
Thou must not buy her a piano for house use.
I didn’t find this book so I broke those rules.

SAM&PAM; The Wedding

the wedding

 

(PAM)
I tried with no success to sleep through the night so at 2 a.m., Bola and I decided to watch YouTube videos and we cut cucumbers in semi circles to put under our eyes to prevent eye bags.
‘’Bola, do you think we are rushing this?’’ I asked.
‘’No, why do you ask that? I see the way you look at each other, it is the real deal.’’
‘’I have known Sam for just 18 months almost 6 days’’
‘’Pam, let us watch another one of those cool wedding videos, it would lift your spirit’’
‘’Bola you are not listening, I have written just the first five lines of my vows and they suck I tell you. How can I be marrying someone and I can’t write something romantic about him?’’

SAM&PAM; The Proposal

the proposal

 

(SAM)
“How long am I going to have this thing for?” I whispered to myself.
My door creaked open and I threw the ring under my blanket. My grandmother entered the room, a smirk on her face.
“Grandma, I’ve told you to always knock before you enter my room.” I said.
“Why?” She asked.
“What if I was naked?”
“Naked?” She scoffed. “I bathed you for years, remember?”
“Well, a lot has changed since the last time you bathed me, okay? Come on.”

SAM&PAM; The Making

the making

 

(PAM)
‘’Pam I didn’t feel you emotionally in the songs.’’ The band director said to me after the first half of the set. ‘’You are getting away with it because your technique is on point, get yourself together for the rest of the set.’’
I nodded and sighed. I knew myself, to sing these songs with emotion I needed to think of Sam. This show was too important to me, I couldn’t afford to blow it.

SAM&PAM; The Time InBetween

the time inbetween

 

(SAM)
I looked at my watch and shook my head.
“She’s not coming Grandma, I am so sure.” I said.
Grandma looked at me with her all-knowing eyes, shook her head and went back to watching TV.
“You’re not going to say anything? Really?”
“I said something thirty minutes ago when you started to panic, why do I need to say something now?”
“She was thirty minutes late then, now she’s one hour late.” I said.
Still she said nothing.

SAM&PAM; The First Date

the first date

 

(PAM)

I am not sure which is worse, a guy that plays the grandmother card or mother card. I didn’t dwell on that too long, in my line of work many men hit on me and just a few of them are sincere and when I looked into Sam’s the first night I met him I knew he was. Even when he used all those smooth lines, I heard the undertone of shyness of a person out of his comfort zone.

SAM&PAM; The Meeting

the meeting

 

(SAM)

It was Friday night and as usual I was at home alone with my grandmother. A lot of my friends tell me I don’t have a life outside work but I don’t agree. I’ve never loved the outdoors and it has affected other parts of my life. I am a programmer – a very good one, at least that’s what my pay cheques indicate, I work from home sometimes; no, I work from home all the time.
