Me: I know it's way too early to talk to your dad about this, but it's something for you to think about. If I am going to spend three days there for your mom's funeral, maybe you and I could work on getting some of the stuff out of the house.
Primo: Yeah. My mom's stuff can all go.
Me: I don't want to sit around doing nothing.
[Translation: If Sly is home, I do not want to sit all day on the sofa waiting for him to criticize me.]
Primo: We'll figure it out. Ted and his wife might be staying, too.
Primo: If my dad is not home yet, then they would just stay in my mom and dad's bedroom.
Me: Three days with Ted?
Me: Oh man. You know I really love you, right?
Primo: It's my mom's funeral!
Me: I know. But Ted. I will have to slit my wrists. I don't think I can stand being in the same space with him.
Primo: I have stayed with your relatives!
Me: All of whom like you and are nice to you! [Except Licking Pat. But even she was not mean. She was just rude.]
