When I entered the surgery waiting room it seemed quite full but my ticket put me at just 12th place in the queue. “Not be long going in”, I said to myself as I took my seat.
An hour later and I'm still only 5th in line. I thought to myself, “That's sixty minutes of my life I'll not get back again!”
- watching the spinning wifi connection icon.
- waiting on the kettle to boil.
- holding for a human to talk to whilst pressing through a series of telephone keyboard choices.
- And how many minutes have I sat and watched the BBC News 24 introduction scroll through 30 seconds (it actually seems longer) of reporters around the world - while mentally counting down the seconds on the screen!
Not exactly memorable moments of my life; instantly forgettable. And that's exactly what happens to all those lost seconds and minutes - straight into the waste bin.
When I was younger, I may not always have appreciated it at the moment but how I wish I had those times and those photographs now.
