Primo: You remember Ted's friend? The one who lives by my mom and dad and who came to the funeral?
Me: The one whose wife, whom your dad barely knew, Sly asked to wash his urine-soaked clothes?
Me: He seems so nice. Why is he friends with Ted?
Primo: I can't figure it out. But he called me this weekend when I was in Florida. I guess Ted told him we would be scattering ashes.
Me: That was nice.
Primo: He is a really nice guy.
Me: Why? Why is he friends with Ted?
Primo: Anyhow, he called to see how I was doing and all, because of the ashes. Then he said that he was taking a break from Ted. I guess even Ted's friends get tired of him.
Me: Yeah. I can see that.
