Eight days later, I have finally heard from Nemo. He e-mailed me to say that he's feeling better and that he'd like to see Lucian. I e-mailed him back and said that I couldn't believe he'd been sick again (at least the fifth or sixth week this year) and that in the future, he should let me know so that he's not leaving us hanging for a week.
His excuses are wearing thin on me. I'd like to know what kind of "illness" prevents him from having any contact for eight days. I know (you know, the world knows) that it's a lie. It just annoys me to no end that he can concoct any excuse and I have no choice but to accept it. Even calling him on it does nothing.
I know I just said this in other posts, but it was such a nice week without him.
