almost without words we focus on a restless stand still: why does the queen not have to wait in line? does waiting dull your mind? when does the bus leave for mombasa? can nervous tics speed up the train? how can you avoid waiting? how much does a professional “queuer” make an hour? why do i have to listen to the “little night music” while holding on the phone? and what are you waiting for anyway?
