In line

Waiting in line one day at the grocery store caused me to reflect.
How many lines in a lifetime?
How much precious time spent waiting?
Stand in line an hour to make a five minute transaction at the courthouse.
Pacing, waiting on someone to make a decision.
But there are good waits too.
Waiting for your first child to be born.
Waiting for your first drivers permit.

I finally deduced that the time you spend waiting you should use to relive the good times in your life.

Or, you can just read the tabloid headlines, like I do.

Walt, is appears to me that waiting time for you is creative time --and therefore, it would seem, time well spent -- so continue to wait in lines and create great opinions and stories to share with us --- peace and love my friend -- Jon Michael

Walt, now explain me this...there are ten lines in front of the cashiers and you always wait on the most slowing gone...always. The supermarket lines hates you? cos, next time you will choose the shortest one and there will be a lady with an article that needs a fifteen minutes checkup! And don't believe what the tabloids headlines say about me, they lie!!!

Interesting observation, Walt. Of course, we men (mostly) are quite familiar with the military expression of "Hurry up and wait," but it never has occurred to me to outline a rewarding protocal to make use of my spare moments committed to waiting.

I can't say that my life will never be the same again after reading your short article, but I think I am about to make a change for the better. However, like you, it's so hard to resist reading about Whitney Houston calling Oprah a liar, etc. Right now I'm happy for my advanced calendar age because with all those years behind me, I'm sure to have quite a few "good times" to reflect on. And if I run out, why I'll just recycle them. If they were good enough for one reflection, they ought to be good enough for a rerun.

That's for the break-through insight, Walt. I knew you were good for something!

Your friend,
Richard
