"Twenty minutes? TWENTY MINUTES?"
"It might be a half hour."
"Come back later, come tomorrow," Mr. Impatience said.
"Like tomorrow, which is VALENTINE'S DAY, is going to be less busy?"
There was grumbling on the line which meant, "Do what you want." So I waited in line and chatted with people about their particular candy choices.
If I wanted pre-packaged chocolates I could have gone to the quick check out. Five minutes tops. Look at all these beauties. And I just buy Bourdeaux. Although, if the box were for me there would be equal Bordeaux, brown sugar squares and molasses chips. This information is just in case anyone is taking note and making a list for my birthday.

And look at this cheerful face. It was worth the wait to be greeted by someone as cute as this. She gave me a free piece of candy and guess what? It was a Bourdeaux. The angels whispered in her ear, I'm sure of it.
