Me: "Zavier, Uncle Eek will be back on Monday. Today is Thursday. Thursday, Friday, Saturday, Sunday, Monday, November 15, 2010, he comes back."
Zavier: (sigh, then turns away from me and closes his eyes)
Me: "I'm sorry buddy, does that make you feel sad?"
Me: "Do you miss your Uncle Eek?"
Me: "Do you want to talk about it, or do you want me to talk about something else?"
Zavier: "Something else."
Me: "Ok buddy."
