Patience

Attention writers: Any time I come across "wait for it..." (as in: "Max ate an entire pizza and then... wait for it... six hamburgers!") in whatever it is I'm reading, I don't wait. I just keep moving right ahead. Maybe it's just me, but I don't find the ellipses really slow me down that much.

Just thought you'd want to know.

Above was my attempt at a modified version of "WAIT FOR IT" But I bet you all scrolled down, so in a way, I accomplished the same goal?!?!?!? Or, was that just simply the most annoying post on SFTC ever!! I would go with the latter.

Bugs - People are typing the words "wait for it" -- they're so bossy.

HPA - (sigh)

Oh, I'm sure I've been totally guilty of "...wait for it..." Blerg.

L - I was pretty sure I had done this, too... and I checked, and sure enough, back in April on this very blog. But I think the statute of limitations has expired on that one, and I feel comfortable imposing the rule - at least on myself. Did people use that phrase much before 2007?

you did use it! that's really horrible! and in a blog about mccain, no less. oh escalator operator. that's just totally bad...i must not have picked up on how silly it was in april. since then, i've become a much more savvy blogger.

Pulling out my multi year collection of the CT to see if it was used in your formative journalistic years.
