WAITING


"So how long do we have to wait?"
"Don't know."
Sigh.
"Don't do waiting."
"So you have a choice?"
"No."
"Then wait."
Sigh.
"You are so off and on."
"So, what?"
"Off and on."
"What's that meant to mean?"
"It means that there is no inbetween with you, no straddling the gaps."
"Straddling the gaps? Where do you get this stuff from?"
"My head, books, life."
"Straddling the gaps..."
Silence.
"So what does that even mean?"
"Waiting, or not waiting, that's what I mean."
"What?"
Sigh.
"To you it is, you wait, or you don't wait. No, perhaps this, perhaps that, maybe this, maybe that."
"Is there?"
"What?"
"Any inbetween?"
"Yes. Maybe. I don't know!"
"Good to see you're so definite."
Tight smile.
"Thanks."
