Will the wait be over?

Good Morning & Happy Sunday!

Will the wait be over for this? Will the wait be over for that?

Today is Sunday 09/18/V3.2 & its quite a day.

I’m out of bisquick & jiffy mix, so no waffles.  Unless I go to the store.

I do need to make a trip out to campus today.  That is my entire to-do list.

The word of the day is pleonasm which is the use of more words that are necessary to express an idea; as, “I saw it with my own eyes”.

Have a great Sunday.
