In which Primo doesn't want to kiss me

Primo: I can't kiss you! You're all germy.

Me: Oh for pete's sake. It's a cold. (But not a Man Cold.)

Primo: I can't get sick!

Me: It's not like you kiss me anyhow.

Primo: What? I kiss you!

Me: Nah. Not like before. It's all gotten kind of perfunctory.

Primo: What do you mean?

Me: Oh you know. We have a little pattern - a routine.

Primo: Are you saying our love life is boring?

Me: Well. Sort of.

Primo: What - you want to have an affair to spice things up?

Me: Are you crazy? The last thing I need is something else to suck away my precious free time.

In which Primo's campaign gets a very nice donation from a group

Remember I was worried that Primo and I would end up paying the campaign debts from our own money, not because we would have any legal obligation but because the money would be owed to friends who had done work for the campaign and we really can't treat our friends like that?

The Teamsters just gave him a multi-thousand dollar check.

We are covered.


Primo is impressed that the check is signed by James Hoffa, but I look at that and think, Well, at least they have decent financial controls.

In which I tell Primo that if he cancels our friends' visit in one week because of a political event that I will divorce him

Primo: Oh no!


Primo: Oh no!

Me [trying not to get involved]

Primo: Oh no!

Me: What?

Primo: The governors' debate is the same night B and G are visiting us!

Me: So?

Primo: But it's here! In town! I want to go to it!

Me: But we already - over a month ago - invited our friends* to stay with us that night so they don't have to get up so early to catch their plane the next morning.

Primo: But the debate! I really want to go! I should have known not to plan anything social during the campaign.

Me: I am not cancelling another social engagement with our friends.**

Primo: But the debate....

Me: If you cancel with B and G, I will divorce you.

* Who have a lake house about an hour from here. They are wonderful friends who have been great hosts to Primo and me many times. They had a super-early flight and would have had to get up a whole extra hour early to leave from their house instead of ours, so I was happy to be able to host them.

** Months ago, I had to reschedule dinner at our house three times and then had to call the friends and ask them to be late the night they actually did come because Primo kept having political BS come up.
