i have been waiting for some communication from new york all day today – and so, every time i look at the clock, i pause & recalculate the numbers.
yesterday, there was a six hour difference, but last night was day-light savings in america, making the current difference seven hours.
how to calculate manhattan time at 4:18pm tel aviv time:
4:18 + 12 = 16:18 (add the twelve when necessary to keep your a.m. & p.m. straight!)
16:18 – 7 = 9:18
the woman i am waiting to hear from has, officially speaking, been in her office for 18 minutes. (well, twenty… yes. it took me a full two minutes to describe my mathematical genius.)
i think to refresh my yahoo account – refresh, refresh, refresh…
but then i don’t do it. i’m a few years older – something i feel most poignantly when i am waiting for something to happen and the fact of waiting isn’t absolutely gripping me to the point of total and utter distraction.
by which i mean: WHERE IS MY E-MAIL?!!!?
hehe. oh aging…
