There should be a social phrase--maybe even a single word--to say, "hey we are still friendly but please don't talk to me right now unless it's urgent". A polite way of turning down casual social interaction.
@nashhigh I like this sentiment. But if someone I'm friends with reacts negatively to me saying "I'm busy right now" I can only think of two reasons:
1. They have no respect for me
2. I have repeatedly rejected interaction from them in the past.
If 2, the friendship will inavoidably be damaged! But that doesn't mean that it is dead, just weaker.
