Sam

I know those of you who know Sam will not be surprised, but he’s going to give a strong and unyielding show ’til the end.
I tried to upload the slides tonight but there’s some technicality I can’t quite figure out. Darn.
Anyway, I saw him yesterday. Just as I arrived, Tom was leaving. We met in the parking lot, and he explained he’s created a letter board for Sam that has the letters listed in order from most used to least. Sam’s first words? “Fuck Me.”
I needed a lesson though, as Sam and I struggled to use the durn thing. I should say, I struggled. It was uncomfortable to feel myself being mother hen-ish trying to confirm that a particular letter was a “yes” or a “no”. ­čÖü Eventually, I did get the beginnings of what Sam wanted to tell me, but by then about two hours had passed. In the meantime, he squeezed my hand to let me know he still thought I was alright, even I was a bit slow with the letter board. ­čÖé He’s still Sam.
