Lobo on dumb questions

Relatively early in No Going Back, Jon is tired and wants to go to sleep when Lobo says they need to talk about two problems. Here's their interchange:

I very much wanted to sleep. “These can’t wait?” I said.

“Imagine a world in which I disturb you without significant cause,” Lobo said. “We call that, ‘fantasy.’ To put it differently, sure, it can wait, as long as you are willing to let me decide your future for you. That has not, however, been your past preference.”
Ah, Lobo. I love his sensitivity.
