The long wait
Oooo! Look at me, two posts in one day!
You ever have one of those times when you’ve worked hard to get something, and the end is in sight but the waiting begins? That’s what I’m going through right now. Let me try to describe it without giving too much away.
When I was a kid, those few last days before Christmas was an agonizing time. It felt like years had passed before I could wake up early Christmas morning, rush downstairs… eat breakfast… and open presents. One Christmas in particular comes to mind. That Christmas was great, because I had asked to get a Tyco Nite Glo race set. Two remote control Firebirds (one silver, one black) and a huge length of track. It was great setting up the race set in these intricate designs with different obstacles and jumps. At one point, I even considered getting a train set to have a train go around it’s track constantly while me and my dad or one of my friends raced like bats outta hell (not my dad, though, he’d never race like that).
Another item was the book Rider Pride, written to capture the history of the Saskatchewan Roughriders football club. Published in 1983, it contained a great deal of information about the team, and while I followed them sparsely before reading the book, this made me a die hard fan.
I’m going through that right now. I have ordered something, which is a final proof, and the wait is unbearable. I normally don’t go to the post office save for once or twice a week. But this week I’ve been there every single day. I only hope that said delivery is coming through the mail, and not via courier. Which then, there would be a message taped to my apartment door (the outside, not the inside).
I’ll give it another go this afternoon, and if there still is nothing, then hope that tomorrow will prove more fruitful.
Until next time…
…keep ‘em flyin’!
