Patience is Not (My) Virtue

I don't pretend to be a patient person - I am getting better as the years go by but I can't pretend that I have got it right yet. I laugh (nicely) at the other impatient people in my life, but that is in sympathy and not because I am mocking them in any way.

Well "someone" has asked for my address so that this "someone" can send me something. They won't tell me what it is - AND IT IS DRIVING ME MAD! Could it be a postcard, or a million dollars - or something in between?  (which is far more likely)

This is not somebody who has sent me something before so I have no precedent to refer to. And it is from overseas so there is no chance I will get it on Monday.

Aaaaaargh! A hint - or even better - tell me what it is!

I know patience is a virtue BUT I AM NOT VIRTUOUS lol.

Okay I shall calm down now, and learn to breathe - and just pretend that I am grown up and mature and not pacing around the house in anticipation lol.

Arghh, let me try this comment again (lost my connection the 1st time).

I'm sorry, I didn't know this was going to be so torturous for you. Hopefully when it arrives, it will have been worth the suffering. :)
Keep yourself busy in the meantime to take your mind off it. ;)

You need to come and spend a few hours in the Sicilian post office to learn patience, mg! Do let us know when you find out what the person wants to send you.

Lol and believe me (as sad as it sounds) your Sicilian post office is on my tourist route after all of your posts - but I will bring a picnic lunch and a sleeping bag lol
