Based on how much of my project I got done today, I should be able to finish it by the end of next week, all other things being equal. And by that I mean, if the Boss leaves me mostly alone, and if no crisis comes up to keep me from working. This was my most productive day, mostly because when the Boss called, I told him I was in the middle of something and would get him an answer when I had a chance.
And that was the end of that conversation. Somehow I got back to work and didnít lose much rhythm. He left me alone until after quitting time. By then he was going through his mail, and he phoned twice during the evening to ask about checks I had written. He couldnít fax me because it was after six oíclock, so he had to call. I understand that, and I didnít mind. You couldnít tell it by my voice, probably, because I think I got a little whiny (and loud) by the last time he called.
