That's true enough. We have bonding sessions sometimes, and I don't mind those. But I don't like it when I'm not fully present any more than I do when he is not fully present.

I think I spent the first quarter hour or so indulging my curiosity about him, and asking him impertinent questions. He answered to the extent it was proper, then was more directive than he normally is and asked how things were since my last session, mentioning a few things in particular. I realized that I couldn't really remember! In that moment, I was tired, I was keyed up, and I could really not remember anything well earlier than that morning. After a few minutes of focusing I was able to remember, and gave him an update on what few things had happened. But then verged off into inconsequentials again. This time he had different views than I did, and we had a lively discussion before I left. I promised to do better next time, and he smiled and said he knew I was all wound up.

But really, I don't accept that excuse from him for not being fully present, and I don't wish to set bad precedent by accepting it for me.
