We wait for a holiday, a vacation, a break, a change. We sigh, we tap our foot, we moan about long lines, days of the week, seconds on the clock. We wait and we wait, and we don't realize that in the grand scheme of things, all of this slow waiting is hiding the fact that time is flying.

I head down the stairs with a quick, "Okay!" knowing full well that the likelihood of following through on that promise is next to nothing.
