Sam – Now why did we do the dumb thing and become adults?
Pam – Force of nature I suppose. But don’t worry honey, there is a child in you yet.
Sam – Uh huh, I happen to like our play time.
Pam – Sam!
Sam – Pam! Seriously, it’s like being married to a Dr. Suess rhyme. Hello Pam, Hello Sam, want some ham? There’s spam in the can if you don’t like ham!
Pam – Oh honey, there are worse things I have never given much thought to in the beginning, like pregnancy for example.
Sam – Huh? We have three beautiful kids, the pregnancies were fine.
Pam – (gives him a sarcastic look) Remember on our third date we tried to buy cowboy hats and boots to go line dancing at that country bar? I remember you couldn’t find a hat large enough to fit your head. I should have noticed it then, no one ever told me to think about it when dating.
Sam – Well, that is what you get for marrying a brainy guy. Oh, I ran into Debbie this afternoon.
Pam – Debbie Downer? Better you than me, I swear that woman is a de-railed train of constant seriousness and whoa. Does she ever lighten up?
Sam – The world is a happening place hun. She told me to tell you hello.
Pam – (contorts face, drops eyes, lips drag)
H e l l – o D e b b i e, h o w a r e y o u r b u n i o n s d o i n g t o d a y
Sam – Corns, Eeyore, at least she is vegetarian about it.
Pam – That was gross, Pooh!
Sam – And where is dat wabbit! (he tickles her in a frisky way)
Pam – Ok seriously stop now, that does not do it for me.
Sam – I know what will (he raises one brow).
Pam – (smiles) I think this is why we became adults.
Sam – Yeah the only reason, besides my sports car that is.
Pam – Don’t forget the great wines to sample, traveling cross country and spa days.
Sam – Yeah, now let’s get back to the main point!
