Sam tried to throw me a surprise going away party in Portland last month.
The planning was all going really well until he realized that he was actually going to be gone, at a conference in New Mexico. So after weeks of party planning and sneaking around, he spilled the beans right before he left on his trip. It was probably a good thing because I don’t love surprises. Naturally there’s one exception to that rule, which is the shock we experienced recently when we found Lola’s sister.
