"Do you know how long I've been waiting for the man of my dreams? It ain't been a minute and it ain't been pretty."

Waiting... Waiting... Waiting... What are you waiting for, right now?

Christmas to come? The phone to ring? Class to be over? The man of your dreams? The line to move? The answer? To be yelled at for setting a toilet on fire?

We all have to wait. How long will you? Could you wait all day, or is it killing you? Are you staring at the phone, the line, the door, a clock? A watched clock never boils you know...
