The proprietor Goerge is very friendly. No, very friendly.
My ex had forbade the use of the word “bed and breakfast” after an extended trip through the “bed and breakfasts” of Maine with his mother. And now it was all coming back to me. I was beginning to understand in a whole new way.

George does not. He remains with me in the room continuing to talk, I pick up my book and begin reading,
this subtle hint has no effect.
I fall asleep.
