Me, reading a novel about a hoarder: Listen to this! "I can't throw that vase away! It can be repaired!"
Primo: You get frustrated watching me be like that.
Me: Yep. And CPS is going to take the kid away in this book because his bed has too much stuff on it - he can't even sleep on it.
Primo: You don't like all the stuff on the bed in the guest room.
Me: Nope. You not only have your own junk, you have imported other people's crap into our house.
Primo: What are you talking about?
Me: You brought a reel to reel tape player from your mom and dad's house into our house!
Primo: But it's an interesting antique!
Me: Then look at photos online.
Primo: It's RARE!
Me: IT IS NOT! It is junk!
Primo: But there are still tapes from my family!
Me: So? Get them transferred to a CD.
Primo: It's not the same!
Primo: Tom [his friend who is visiting] also thinks that a reel to reel tape player is an interesting antique.
Me: You told me that Tom has a ton of old junk in his basement. He is not exactly a credible source.
