Do good things come to those who wait?

So they say.
So, yes, lets wait, even if that means waiting with the trembling heart of the foreigner in Juan José Arreola’s “El Guardagujas”. Sometimes, the wait will be only eight minutes long - who knows? Sometimes, the wait will last for months, even a lifetime - be ready, stay at the nearby hotel, and be ready to rush out once the moment comes.
What cannot ever be guaranteed, though, is what happens after the train has arrived - Whether it will travel according to your personal (and extremely naïve) plans, or it will take you to a whole different life you never envisioned before. So… Well, I’m waiting for my train to R. We shall in due time see about it
