You know, greek_amazon made this icon for me, and I never end up using it. Because the stuff I wait on? Is stuff I end up not wanting to talk about where people can see. Not exactly because I’m afraid I’ll jinx it; rather that I dislike publicly showing my hopes in the event that the thing I’m hoping for falls through. It would be more crushing to me then. Better if I can just be crushed to a lesser degree in private.
The alternative, of course, is to make cryptic posts like this one. I’m waiting on something! But I won’t tell you what! Just, y’know, keep your fingers generically crossed! I promise I’m not waiting on the completion of my death ray to kill you all!
Yeah. This is why I end up not using this icon, even though it is so very, very true.
