Primo brought up to his dad that he thought Doris might be happier in a retirement community.
"She could meet people for coffee, she could play cards, she could be in a book club," he said to Sly.
Sly shook his head. "Your mother and I intimidate people."
When Primo told me this story, I said, "It's a good thing we don't know any smart people. Or we might be really intimidated."
Primo agreed. "Our friends must all be not smart. Otherwise, we would not want to be friends with them."
"And we must not be smart, either, or nobody would want to be friends with us."
We are very lucky that we are not smart and our friends are not smart. We would be lonely indeed if there were nothing but intimidating people around us.
