Remember how we talked about Sly and his apparent lack of boundaries?
Hmm. If you don’t remember, let me remind you:
· He offered his shower to Primo and me even though I was reluctant to share a bedroom with Primo under his roof
· He told me that he and Doris shower together all the time
· He told Primo about his Viagra use.
Here is Exhibit D re Sly’s Lack of Boundaries and His Total Cluelessness about Appropriate Conversations with His Adult Child.
Primo: You will not believe what my dad asked me.
Primo: He asked if I had ever seen “Deep Throat.”
Me: Your dad asked if you have ever watched a famous porn movie?
Me: Does your dad know what the word “boundary” means? He was an English professor. I would expect he would know the definitions of common words.
Primo: Nope. Anyhow, he said that he and my mother had watched it.
Me: Oh you wanted to know that. Wait. Your dad admits to you that he watches porn?
Me: But why? Why would he share that?
Primo: I don’t know. I know he watches online porn.
Me: He told you?
Primo: No, but when I have worked on his computer, I have seen his browsing history and his bookmarks.
Me: That is gross. I mean, I don’t care, I guess, but that’s not the kind of thing you share with someone.
Primo: And he said that there have been many women who threw themselves at him but he has turned them all down. There was even a man who offered to trade wives with him, because the man's wife was hot for my dad.
Me: Would it shock you if I told you I find that hard to believe? Not that your dad would tell you that kind of thing, although to be honest, I do find even that a bit shocking, but that women would throw themselves at your dad.
