I spoke to the man on my lunch break. Things appear as though they may be better this week in terms of unwanted guests. One can only hope.
His mood was much improved over this morning and I think there may be an opening for an only slightly unpleasant discussion concerning "friend time" this evening. Maybe I'm just annoyed because of the weather. It is cold and rainy, reminding me that summer is over every time I look out the window. It is not a pleasant reminder.
