and while I'm making myself sad...  
…thinking about Shakespeare characters talking about time, I might as well mention that moment in Hamlet where Hamlet says his father has died "within 's two hours," and Ophelia responds (worriedly?), "Nay, 'tis twice two months, my lord" - and then Hamlet still seems to fail to hear her properly; he says, "O heavens, die two months ago, and not forgotten yet?" and not four months - as though he still can't really quite process his father's absence, or believe in it.

Yes, nice! I am writing about interims in Hamlet right now. Mind if I send it to you when done? (Shortish)
