- Waiting to see if NatandMarie would get up in time to go to breakfast (they didn’t – they had a late night be night before and overslept – they’re still cool, though!)
- Waiting for a bus to go out to the fringes of Toronto to pick up some card stock
- Waiting to get some service at Paperland so I could buy some cardstock to give to Tyrone at Guerilla Printing so we could run some test copies of wedding invitations
- Waiting for a bus to escape from Markham back to a diverse population (yes, I went there!)
- Waiting on that same bus for another bus while we all waited for the cops to show up about an earlier incident on the bus – if I’d switched to the first bus that’d come by, I wouldn’t have been waiting, though. That was a heckuva long wait, for the record.
- Waiting for the subway which showed as “temporarily delayed” on the signboard above after JUST missing one
- Waiting on another train that’s apparently supposed to come in 8 mins. Then 9 mins. Then 2 mins. And now back to 8 mins. And now 11?!
- Waiting for streetcars
- Waiting for food
- Waiting, waiting, waiting
If I were a lesser man, I’d have let all this waiting and time wasting get to me – but why worry? In that situation, there was only so much I could do. What was outside of my control:
- When public transit does or doesn’t run
- How long it takes to get service in a place of business
- How long it takes to cook food
