And of course, it’s always a “worse” day when Les shows up. Doesn’t stop Linda’s smirking, though!
Last week was annoying, like a mosquito you can hear humming but can’t find; this week promises to be a whole horde of roaches appearing when the kitchen light goes on. But instead of scattering, they stand right there and stare at you.
But why is Les here? Linda has always been shown commiserating with Buck, Bull’s “friend,” whereas Les isn’t any kind of a friend, airquotes or not. Why would she text Les, instead of Buck? Buck knows what’s going on, Les has no idea.
I suspect the author’s reasoning is something like, I’m not going to waste my New York Times audience on a clod like Buck. If they read the New York Times, they obviously can appreciate the sheer wonders of Les Moore.
