Ch 2 March Sly asks Primo if he has ever seen Deep Throat and I reminisce about all the times my dad and I talked about porn – oh wait – that never happened because my father had a firm understanding of what’s appropriate, appropriate being you do not talk to your children, even your adult children, about your sex life and/or porn

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.

Me: What?

Primo: He asked if I had ever seen “Deep Throat.”

Me: Your dad asked if you have ever watched a famous porn movie?

Primo: Yes.

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?

Primo: Yes.

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.

Primo: Nope.
