In which I tell Primo we have to get our affairs in order so that when we die, my sister is not stuck spending months dealing with our crap
Primo I have been going through papers for months. I finally finished last night around 3:30. And some of them (a small percentage) were only partially sorted and will end up at home! My parents didn't do it right.
Me we cannot leave that kind of mess for Jenny
Primo I promise to go through anything that goes home with me quickly.
Me I will help
Primo Jenny lives faster than you. She may die first.
Me you are once again missing the point
Primo If only we had kids so that we could burden someone with a job like this.

Me nobody should be burdened like this
Me someone else could cut our grass and shovel snow, too

And now, Primo is running for state-level public office. And - it's not fun. For either of us.
