Conversations are the soul to every story. Enjoy…
“What happened to us?”

“You grew up and left me behind.”

“Typical! I asked one question and you answer a different one. I asked what happened to ‘us’ and not what happened to ‘me’!”


“Yes us!”

“Us grew up and left us behind then.”

“This, this right here is why we have issues.”

“We have issues??? This is the first i am hearing of it. And even if we did, seriously, you are blaming our issues on ‘this’.”

“Can you stop taking every word i say and playing on it?”

“It is called a pun.”

“And when you do it, it is pun-itive.”

“Look who is playing with words now and becoming more and more like me with every second. Oh and she smiles too. Admit it, I am irresistible.”

“Be serious Made.”

“When have i ever been? Isn’t this why you fell in love with me? My ‘unseriousness’ to combat your ‘serious nerdiness’ which some people have in past times described as over zealousness, and in more recent times as weirdness…”

“Keep digging your own grave. Why can’t we ever have a serious conversation? You just have to make wisecracks about it all, don’t you?”

“I love you Dema. There is no pun I can play with those three words. No wisecracks I can finagle out of them. No unseriousness I can muster when I say them. There are times you want to beat the crap out of me and its okay if you do so long as you kiss my bruises when you are done. And there will be times I want to drop you off at the motherless babies home, sorry ‘boyfriendless’ babies home will be more apt here… Ouch, there is no need to be violent! As i was saying, even that is okay because you know I will back to adopt you in less than an hour. This is our life-made up of the good and bad, the beautiful and the ugly. I know one of the ‘beat the crap out of Made’ times happened for you tonight when I ignored the new hair-do but just because i didn’t say anything about your hairstyle does not mean ‘something happened to us’. ‘Us’ is just fine; i on the other hand am a little traumatized by the new hairstyle.”

“I knew it! What is wrong with my hair?’

“I didn’t say there was anything wrong with your hair or the lack of it. I just said i am traumatized-I am used to my woman having some hair, you know. This baldness takes some getting used to.”

“It isn’t baldness. I just cut it all. Everyone says my cheekbones are highlighted beautifully now.”

“You have cheekbones? Breaking news… Ouch, you are so violent!”

“Hmmmm… By the way how did you know it was the hair i really wanted to talk about?”

“Because you are my woman and i know you better than i know my bloody self. Besides you are pretty easy to read especially with the way you have been caressing your head all evening and giving me dirty looks when i didn’t say anything about it. “

“Awwww…this, this right here is why i love you.”

“I see you are blaming it all on ‘this’ again. And an ‘Awww???’ Seriously??? Is that it? Is that all i get for my eloquently serious speech?”

“Don’t roll your eyes! You look like Steve Harvey when you do.”

“Heaven forbid! Now can a man get some loving before you find some other reason to ask me ‘what happened to us?’ “

Women are weird creatures..I am one so i am allowed to say so. we never say what we mean. I look forward to the day a man will get me the way Made gets Dema. (notice what i did with the names? 🙂
