My fiancée’s voice kept breaking up during her phone message, but I thought I caught the words “somber” and “mood” just before the line went dead.
Thus I composed myself as I entered the security code at the gate and drove up to her apartment pod. I steeled myself for what, no doubt, promised to be a slow evening of earnest conversation.
But as I approached the door, to my surprise, I heard loud music and the sounds of revelry inside. The whole atmosphere, in fact, seemed positively carnivalesque. Before I could even knock, my fiancée stepped out onto the porch, threw her arms around my neck, and started shimmying in place.
S’up, ese? she asked me. Din’chu get my message, I was in a samba mood?
