In which Primo goes to Russell's house to talk about running for Russell's county seat and then he and I have a big ol' fight about the stupid campaign and how it's ruining our lives

Primo went over to Russell Crowe's house this afternoon to talk to him about running for Russell's seat. He wanted to get to Russell before Leo did or at least pretty close.

Primo: So I went over there and rang the doorbell.

Me: Was he home?

Primo: Yes. But he was taking a nap! I woke him up!

Me: Oh no!

Primo: But he was really nice. He invited me inside and we talked. He told me that he and his wife cancelled their vacation this summer so he could campaign.

Me: That stinks.

Primo: Yeah.....

Me: Oh! About vacation! When we go to Spain in November, if you have quit your job, you won't have to take your computer and we can actually be on vacation!

[Primo has taken his work computer with him on every vacation we have taken and usually spends a few hours every morning working, including working until 4 a.m. in the lobby - because that was the only place he could get an internet connection - of the hotel the first night of our honeymoon in Spain.]

Primo: About that.

Me: What?

Primo: Maybe we should postpone.

Me: What? Are you crazy? We have been trying to take this trip for over a year!

Primo: Yes, but if I am serious about running for the county seat, I will need to be working on that in November.

Me: Fine. Then we can change it to October.

Primo: But that's before the election!

Me: You don't have a chance of winning that race!

Primo: But I need to work on it!

Me: If you quit your job and stick with the original plan of two to three events a week, then you will have plenty of time to lay the groundwork for the county run.

Primo: It doesn't work that way.

Me: I cannot believe you are actually going to do this.
