I Hate Waiting

November 5, 2020

Hello, there! Slow going?

Look, I don’t mean to be rude, but this is not as easy as it looks, so I’d appreciate it if you wouldn’t distract me.


Thank you.

I do not suppose you could speed things up?

If you’re in such a hurry, you could lower a rope or find something useful to do.

I could do that. I’ve got some rope up here. But, I do not think that you would accept my help, since I am waiting around to kill you.

That does put a damper on our relationship.

But, I promise I will NOT kill you until we finish the counting.

That’s very comforting. But, I’m afraid you’ll just have to wait.

I hate waiting. I could give you my word as a politician.

No good. I’ve known too many politicians.

Is there any way you’ll trust me?

Nothing comes to mind.

And so we wait.

Stay safe
