So Chef is being more of an asshat than usual... which even for him is a high-level to attain. His business has slowed down quite radically and instead goes to work on the rental. Meanwhile, I work remotely from the rental with a caulking gun in one hand and a mouse in the other.
He ran into an old co-worker from 5 jobs back who recently lost his wife to Hodgkin's lymphoma. Chef personally knew his wife as well because she was the nurse who delivered his 3 ferals!
Chef was musing on what it's like to be alone. I wryly said: "you'd be fine." (in actuality Chef has never been on his own for very long)
Then he said something very strange.
"I don't know about that...I've always had good women behind me."
Whiskey Tango Foxtrot?
Now keep in mind in the past under alcohol-fueled tirades he has said that I am "just as bad as the Girhippo."
And Girhippo NEVER financially supported a man as I have been doing my entire adult life.
Needless to say I made no comment about this strange quip.
