It’s not like I was asking for a BIG miracle; just a small one would be plenty.
Just enough to take the edge off the waiting.
I hate waiting. –> Such a funny statement that is. Seriously, who enjoys waiting? Is there anyone who doesn’t hate waiting?
“I enjoy long walks, waiting for the end of time, and Rocky Road ice cream.” –> you won’t find that profile on OKCupid. *Pro Tip: If you do, ABORT, because that has to be one crazy Mother…*
Just a little miracle I insist, like a bum begging for a cigarette at the bus stop. My paper bag canteen has run dry and the reality is sobering.
Defeated, I fold up my cardboard sign and walk away, middle finger to the sky and eyes searching the ground.
