October 11, 2010
I took my number and found a seat. Above, an LED display showed an incomprehensible flow of letters and numbers.

I read, and looked up whenever a 'bing!' announced a new bundle of letters and numbers.

A woman sat down two seats away from me. After a while she asked, "How long is this going to take?"

I said, "I've been here for about a half hour, and I think I've advanced halfways."

Some time later she said, "This is horrible."

"I know, I know."

Then my number came up.

I looked at her, said, "Whoopie," and went off.
