May 21 Who's in charge

Primo: I don't want raisins in my spinach.

Me: They're in mine.

Primo: But they shouldn't be there at all. I'm the Decider. I get to decide.

Me: When you're the cook, you get to decide. If I can find a job so you can quit your job, then you'll be the cook.

Primo: But I'll be busy campaigning.

Me: Wait a second! Are you telling me that I'm supposed to work and take care of all the house stuff?

Primo: I'll be campaigning. The proper role of the campaign spouse is to run everything at home while the candidate campaigns.

Me: Oh no. Oh no, no, no. If I get a job so you can quit yours, you will be taking care of things at home. You will be doing the cooking.

Primo: Maybe as long as there is not too much cutting up of vegetables.


  1. No no no no no no no ... Please tell me he did not say that! Primo, you didn't say that, did you? Really? You just lost this woman's vote!

    1. Yep, he said it. :) Fortunately, he is usually playing to my blog audience when he makes outrageous statements like that! He claims not to read my blogs, but he does enjoy his slight degree of Sheldon-ish fame.
