In which Primo has to clean Sly's you know what AGAIN - Warning: Bodily functions discussed in detail (this is what happens when people get old and sick)

  • Primo


    My dad is in surgery. I got almost no sleep last night, and I had to clean up shit. I think making people (especially elderly people) prepare themselves for surgery instead of admitting them the day before is cruel.

    I'm cranky.

    He had to get up and poop four times after drinking his magnesium citrate, and one of those times he didn't make it to the bathroom before the poop came out.

    Primo

    Primo knows that nice != non-abusive, right? I'm not being facetious, I mean it. When you've been verbally and emotionally abused, any crumb of kindness seems much more significant in scope and degree.

    (I guess that's kind of what you said at the end there, isn't it, GD? Except more elegantly.)

    1. Yeah, he's so used to his parents being awful that any little less awful seems like nice. Whereas I, who had a wonderful dad and have a wonderful mom, know that "not as mean as usual" is not the same as nice.

  2. I'm truly on the edge of my seat, wondering if it can get any worse. For both you guys. Thinking of you (retrospectively!) J x
