So Primo and I are arguing a bit because he is cranky about Ted and because he did chores all day. I informed him that part of the deal of getting to be the person who does not get up at 6:00 a.m. to work for The Man is that you do the chores so shut up.
Then he said I need to be supportive because of all the pressure Ted is putting on him and I said shut up about that too because any pressure he accepts from Ted is his own choice.
"It does not count as real pressure if you are the person with the power," I said. "All you have to do is tell Ted to go to hell. There. Done! And then block his phone number and send his emails straight to junk."
"I don't know," he said.
"I didn't send that email. I think I need to tone it down. And I found out Ted had to have a tooth pulled today - a molar cracked."
"So?" I asked.
"Well, I can't send him a stern email on the same day he had a tooth pulled!"
"Of course you can! He will be drugged and guess what? I have had a tooth pulled and I have had multiple oral surgeries and LIFE GOES ON."
