The waiting place

“I can’t wait until my vacation.” The person in the store said.

“Is it Friday, yet?” The delivery guy asked.

“Only three weeks until Daylight saving time.” Another pointed out.

They mean well, but unfortunately they’re all in “The Waiting Place”, which of course you know from Oh, the Places You’ll Go! It’s perhaps the worst of the many pitfalls one can face in one’s life and career. Dr. Seuss portrays this a a sort of self-imposed Pergatory where everyone just waits for something to happen. It’s an easy place to visit, and it’s easy to linger there. After all something has to happen sometime right?

Except when it doesn’t.

Find a door to open and get out of there.
