"In about four and a half minutes." a voice came back. I said "thanks" out loud, thinking it was some other high schooler behind me. It wasn't.

The next day was "six minutes, ten," then it started to give me a count down "12 minutes....seven minutes, 45 seconds..." It was consistent, and accurate. It became a game to me, and I didn't so mind the cold, knowing how much longer I had to wait.
