How Will You Know?


     Amy was the lead soprano-singing waitress at la Casa Sena Cantina in Santa Fe.  Often, I would go there to have a coffee and listen to her sing.  So, it was no surprise when I showed up on May 11, 1989.  But little did she know that there was a big surprise in

the offing.

     I had made arrangements with the music director, George Koumantaros, that I would propose marriage to Amy.  He planned to have Amy, as Sarah, and Greg Grissom, as Sky Masterson, sing a duet from the musical Guys and Dolls.  Greg would sing, ”How will you know when your true love comes along?”  Amy would reply, ”I’ll know!  I’ll know!”  They would sing this back and forth until Greg would sing one final, emphatic, ”How will you know?”  Amy would stomp her little feet, put her arms akimbo, and heartily respond, “I’ll know!”  Then, Greg would normally step forward, embrace her, and kiss her.  She would then slap him for his brashness.
