The Hurry Up and Wait

Today I have been a repeat victim of The Hurry UP and Wait--THUW for short.  The agony of stressful rushing, my nagging impulse to be on time to all destinations, and the world's laziness and causality has led to today's episodes of THUW.  In attempts to console my poor THUW-sing situation, I have come up with a McGyver inspired list of THUW Activities.   


1. Pick ingrown hairs with my mailbox key.
2. Write a whitty haiku: 

oranges taste like spam.
oh wait. took the wrong bite. oh.
oranges sound good now

3. Make a mental list of all the things I would rather be doing than waiting:
-properly removing my ingrown hairs.
-eating actual oranges
-promoting world peace.

4. Time myself holding my breath and not blinking, just incase I need those skills in the future.

5. Practice my circular breathing for a potential future as an infamous female digeridoo player.

6.  Or. maybe I could just convince the world to be on time, so I don't have to hurry up and wait.

I hate waiting. I'm already dreading the post office tomorrow, It makes me twitchy.

Yes, I know the feeling of the hurry up and wait syndrome:) Seems like everything is moving in really slow motion these days:):)
