In the end, it was the Sunday afternoons he couldn't cope with, and that terrible listlessness which starts to set in at about 2:55 [14:55], when you know that you've had all the baths you can usefully have that day, that however hard you stare at any given paragraph in the papers you will never actually read it, or use the revolutionary new pruning technique it describes, and that as you stare at the clock the hands will move relentlessly on to four o'clock [16:00], and you will enter the long dark teatime of the soul.

The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul (Literature) - TV Tropes

This is a remake of The Long Dark Teatime of the Soul. The first one proved to be a popular beverage, almost more so that the Pan-Galactic Gargle Blaster, so I decided to make more. The main difference between the two (besides me knowing what I’m doing this time), is that I used the zest and juice of the lemon only, instead of throwing in full quarters of the lemon which contain bitter pith. I hate bitter pith, don’t you?

I've just read Douglas Adam's "The Long Dark TeatTime of the soul". I enjoyed it, but finished the book without any clear idea of the explanation for what had been going on. The final chapters, which I'd assumed would explain things, just seemed to open up more questions. So I'm wondering if anyone knows and can explain.
