'Number 62'

The ticket said ‘Number 62’.
Eighteen spaces away. Two windows open meant if each person took two minutes to complete whatever it is they need to complete, that would make for a thirty six minute wait. Average.
Long time standing, waiting.
Should have brought a book.
Number forty-five doesn't show!
Excellent. Little victories.
Rumble of excitement in the waiting room.
We’re closing in now. Might look for a seat and get comfortable.
