    Yup, in a dream I was having a proper rant with someone I do not believe I have ever met but he ticked me off.
    I guess it was one of those things that a person wants to say but never does because in this case, the guy told me that he would be with me in a second.

    I immediately rebounded by asking, “Which second”? The one that just passed by or is it one somewhere down the line?
    There are 60 seconds in a minute and 3,600 in an hour so which one of those seconds are you talking about? I remember saying 36,000 in my dream but hey, in a dream rant anything is legal. I could have said a million and in the dream world it would still have been correct. My dream, my dream math.
    I digress.

    Anyway, I didn’t get an answer and woke up almost immediately after my questions but even awake I was still musing about the many times I have been told to wait a second or a minute but it never ended up that way.
    I mean, hey guys, how long did that minute really take for your date to make her appearance and give ya a break from meeting her parents? 15? 20? an hour’s worth?
    And, when the nurse leads you back to the little exam room and before she closes the door she says, “the doctor will be with you in a minute”, which minute is she talking about? The one just after she said it or the one just before you’ve waited 30 of those minutes?

    A strange but provocative dream indeed. At least I finally had my rant and without it really hurting anyone’s feelings.

    I'd much rather have someone give me an insincere "It will only be a minute" than a literal "This is gonna take forever."

    A week from now, it will still be "just 1 minute ago."

    I'm the same way, so I can't blame that on your gender...;)

    Yeah, but it kinda goes along with a dentist’s small pinch. “You’ll feel a small pinch and in a second you’ll be numb”.

    Actually, I waited quite a while for Yvonne and it was well worth it. Years!

    And a man said to God, “what is a million dollars like to you?”. and the Lord answered, “a penny”.
    And then the man asked, “what is a million years like to you?” and the Lord answered, “a second”.
    Thinking for a bit, then the man asked, “well, how about giving me a million dollars then?”
    And the Lord answered and said, “sure, wait a second”.

    I keep thinking about that joke and wondering which comedian I saw tell it. I bet it was back in the 80s.

    It’s a given that his material wouldn’t be played today but it sounds a little like something Brother Dave Gardner would say.

    Devilish.
    So you liked seeing that poor beau sweat gallons whilst being given the third degree let alone that fear in his eyes after he was told that your dad would be waiting up and cleaning his shotgun.
    15 minutes and you wind up with a sweat soaked, mind blown blob of protoplasm.
    Really devilish.....:)
