I have been expecting two emails since morning and I am amazed by how impatient I am. It seems like forever but less than a minute has gone by before the last time I checked. The emails themselves are nothing important or time sensitive yet the fact that I am waiting for some kind of response makes me anxious and restless.
Of course like everything else, this train of thought led me places. Waiting for guests to arrive, waiting for the train, waiting for the doctor to go on rounds, waiting for exam results to be out. The list is endless but at every stage in my life I seem to be preoccupied by waiting. Almost like waiting is all I do. Yet, the way I wait for something to happen is so different from K. I pace, I look at the clock, I curse and I will time to move. K is almost meditative. Picking up a book or watching TV he keeps himself occupied till whatever is to happen happens.
So, while I wait for my emails to arrive, tell me – What kind of a person are you when you are waiting for things to happen?
