According to Amelia ~ remember her? Viktor Navorski’s friend ~ life is all about waiting. Everybody waits. Everyone wait for conference to be finished, Birthdays to come, Busses to arrive and more. Come to think of it, we’ve all been waiting. When we were young we have always wondered how’s it gonna be after finishing school. After that, we waited to have our first job. Next, we will wait for a person to come in our life. This person will be the reason for another wait: for us to get married. And when we are married and there’s nothing more to wait, everything starts to be routinary. That’s when we began to wait again. To wait for something to happen in our life. Something that will snap us out of this cycle. That’s a very absurd way of looking at it but you can’t blame me, because right now I am in the middle of a wait. A very important wait of my life.
Is it me or that’s how things really goes. When you are waiting everything seems to be freaking slow. Busses take forever to arrive. And it takes another forever to get on the place you wanna go. People tend to be annoying. It’s like they instantly mastered the art of annoyance. They move so slowly and when you try to ask them to move faster, they look back and smile at you. What is that?! Huh?! They smile at you when you’re trying to make them move fast! Wtf?! Also, everything around you just piles up. Radio plays the song you hate. Television makes you remember of the things you want to forget. Everybody moves strangely familiar. It’s like you’ve seen these moves from someone.
I know I’m overreacting, hehe. But really waiting is no joke. In fact, it’s a serious business. It’s a near insanity experience. So all of you there laughing, I challenge you to take the burden of waiting. Let’s see how sissies you all are! Ok, I’m cool now, hehe. Sigh.
Tick-tock-tick-tock. Are we there yet?
