Waiting

While I was waiting for my nails to dry, I watched Meryl Streep wait for Alec Baldwin to show up for an illicit chicken and mashed viagra pills

It was a scene from the movie, “It’s Complicated”. Meryl has begun and affair with her ex-husband Alec and she has agreed to a tryst at her home. The film shows her cooking, getting increasingly excited, and becoming giddy as the preparations come together. She cuts the tag off her new dress, opens the wine and waits. And waits And waits.

Oooops, Alec has

remarried and is tied up at home with a young wife, stepson and obligations.

What did the waiting do for Meryl? The waiting proved to be the reality check that Meryl needed. The reality was that their marriage was over, the thrill of being courted deflated, the revenge against his new wife became tarnished and she went from excitement to humiliation as the undeniable facts revealed themselves.

Waiting makes us feel bad about ourselves. Whether it is true or not, we feel that our time has been wasted and our worth has been taken for granted. We feel humiliated because we have been exposed (at least to ourselves) as foolish and that feels pretty awful.
