1. Talked to my sister yesterday after she read the email Ted sent to Primo. She wants to know more about Primo's apparent wondrous powers to make other people lose weight.
"I'd like to lose 20 pounds," she said. "Could Primo make me lose weight after he takes care of Sly's 30 pounds?"
2. Me: You know if you feel compelled to stay there for a few months, I will support you.
Primo: But I don't want to stay here any longer!
3. Primo and I have some form of this conversation at least every other day.
Primo: Cat #1 is usually mean, but she has gotten to like me.
Me: That's nice.
Primo: She will sit in my lap and purr, but I am always worried that she is going to scratch me. She does that a lot.
Primo: She will act all nice, then suddenly slash at me. I can't trust her!
Me: Because you know what she is like.
Me: Because she has shown you that she is a cat who scratches.
Me: And she does not change her essential nature.
Me: And yet I should try to have a relationship with your father why? Is he going to change his essential nature?
