In which Primo does not want me to accompany him to campaign events because people might think he beat me up

I have a black eye. Nothing serious. Just had a little bump and now I have a black eye. The bump was not with Primo's fist. Primo has a temper but he is not a hitter. We have wondered if Sly is a hitter. Sly has hit Primo. We don't know if he has hit Doris. I think Sly's preferred weapon is words. He can slice Doris into tiny little pieces in a second with his cruel words.

Primo fights mostly fair. He and his ex attended marriage counseling. He made a real effort not to be like Sly. So even when we argue, he plays fair.

He is definitely not a hitter.

However - with my black eye - the first thing people will think is that he hit me.

He told me he did not want me to go with him to a party picnic on Saturday.

Like I wanted to go anyhow.

But I told him that I was going to get a t-shirt that says, "My husband, who is running for Congress as a [Party], does not beat me!"

Danger: Here be dragons

Nothing like stumbling across your college boyfriend's facebook page and falling into the rabbit hole of looking at his kids' pages and the videos they have posted on youtube. This is not a good way to spend time. Not a good way at all.

That could have been my life.
