In which Primo has to adjust the windows at the cottage where we go on vacation

Only we are not on vacation any more, so we are very, very sad. I wish we were the kind of people who can be on vacation all the time. We are not. We are people who have to work.

I think I would be such a better rich trust fund brat than the ones who get hooked on cocaine or make sex tapes that become public. If I didn't have to work for a living and could do whatever I wanted, I would stay totally under the radar. Nobody would know my name, not even for Good Works. Any Good Works I did would be anonymous. Well, donations of money. Good Works done in person are hard to keep anonymous, but I would try. I really hate having my photo taken and can't imagine I would feel any differently about it if I were rich.

The other thing I would do if I were rich would be to spend a lot of time at this cottage, the place we have been going on vacation for several years now. I think I could spend every day of the rest of my life sitting in that sunroom, reading and listening to the waves crash on the shore.

Of course every day, Primo would have to come in after me to adjust the windows. Do you see the difference between the first and second photos?


  1. And then Primo would have all the time in the world to run for office, and could attend all the fundraisers.

  2. Ahhhh my daddy used to do that. If we wanted a laugh we would adjust one out of place and watch him fix it, then wait til his back was turned and mess it up again. We were evil hehehe.

  3. I'd be right with him on this one, cannot stand things like that. Neighbors across the street have those raise from the top or bottom blinds and they are all crazy all over the place. Makes me nuts and I clench everytime I see their house.

  4. The next time he wants to adjust the windows, tell Primo you have a complex algorithm that optimizes the flow rate! ;)

    (Says the guy who opens THAT ONE window, NOT the one next to it, because I want the air to circulate a specific way.)

    Oh, and we're getting new windows! I'm so, excited! Well, both, I suppose. :D

    My Partner in Crime and I recently realized that we could retire now...if we were willing to live without traveling (well, maybe just by bus) and fancy cheeses (#firstworldproblems). So we're going to work another 10-15 years, but it feels really good to say that we're CHOOSING to do that.
