In which Primo muses that maybe Sly would have changed the will if he had lived longer because he was so grateful at all the help Primo was giving him and I bite my tongue

Primo: Maybe my dad would realize how grateful he was to me and acknowledge all the help I had given them.

Me: Umm. OK.


Primo: Although on my dad's last day, when Jack and I were with him in the room, he was delirious and saying that he was going to disinherit Jack and me and leave it all to Ted.

  1. You are a good wife. Me? I'm not sure I'd have been able to rein in my sarcastic eyebrow. But let him continue to tell these stories... sometimes it helps to pretend that you got the parents you deserved, even if the fantasy only lasts a little while.

    2. Yes he did, Joan. Primo can (and does) annoy the heck out of me, but he is a kind, generous, thoughtful man. He was a wonderful son to Sly. Sly was an awful father to Primo.

    3. convo, yeah - I have to remind myself that there is no reason for me to convince Primo that his dad was a jerk. Sly is dead. Finito.

  2. I don't think I'd be able to listen to that without being hysterical. You're very nice.

  3. If Ted had heard that, he would have had a lawyer there pronto!
    Sly was a manipulator til the end.
