The whole truth and nothing but the truth about my husband, his parents, and me - That Woman.

Monday June 11 Can't it be about me for once?
Me: Maybe the reason I can't get a job is because I suck. Maybe I got laid off because I suck. Everyone I know has a job. My friends from grad school are in high-level positions. Maybe I'm just really, really crummy and that's why nobody wants me.
Primo: You do not suck.
Me: Yes I do.
Primo: There's age discrimination and discrimination against women. You should be mad at The Man.
Two weeks before our wedding, my husband's parents called to tell him 1. they weren't coming and 2. he shouldn't marry me. Since then, I have gotten along with them about as well as you might think. PS They died hating me and disinherited my husband. PPS None of this is made up.
And now, Primo is running for state-level public office for the November 2018 election. And - it's not fun. For either of us.
