In which Primo talks to a guy whose dying best friend asked him to date his wife once he was dead

Totally not making this up.

I don't make anything up on this blog. I do not have that much of an imagination. I am but a stenographer.

Primo: I talked to this guy last night - I have been getting to know him and we are becoming friends.

Me: Uh huh.

Primo: He said that when his best friend was dying - this was last year, he asked Zach if he would date Carrie, his wife, once the best friend was dead.

Me: That is so sad! And so touching!

Primo: I know! He wanted his wife to be with someone nice.

Me: What a great guy - to worry about what happens to his wife when he is dead.

Primo: It's really sweet.

Me: So what happened? Are Zach and Carrie dating?

Primo: No!

Me: Why not?

Primo: Because two days after the friend died, Carrie came on to Zach! He was so horrified that he hasn't had anything to do  with her since.


  1. I found your blog from Captain Awkward, and right now I'm enjoying the fact that I'm single without ILs more than ever -- but I thought I'd comment here.

    Primo, your new acquaintance's dead friend spoke with his wife as well, and its likely she was only trying to move things along. That he was waiting around to put the moves on her, and reacted as if she was made of herpes when she dared to act like an equal... I don't know. It's the 21st century, and that red A is still being pinned on us.

    I was going to be furious that she was being passed along like a farm animal, but since she was fine with it... I'm just sorry your friend's friend was such a jerk to her.

    1. Wellllll... I might wait until my husband's body was cold before I hit on someone else! However - when someone is ill for a long time before death, the mourning has already happened. So I don't know. I need to follow up with Primo to see if there have been any developments since then!

    2. And I just asked Primo and he remembers the event, but not who it was. We will work on this. We need an update!
