Does Godot have a cell phone? Perhaps we can get someone to track its location.

That rock could be erratic, therefore could you trust it?

Then we have to wait.

That could explain it. The rock wasn't here before. Now it is. Things have changed here since yesterday.

I'm hungry, too.

Godot doesn't like change, which is why he moves so slowly

We could go, but we can't, 'cause we're waiting. Therefore, as we can't go, only thing we can do is wait.

He said he can't get here on his own, we have to come get him. But we're not allowed to leave here without him. Catch-42.

That is Catch 22.

(rule # 22:

You must ask for a section 8 discharge to get a psych discharge.

If you ask for a psych discharge, you aren't crazy enough to be granted a section 8...)

But if you are posting from a smartphone, you are taking the place with you as you go .... So if you stay logged in, you can go get Godot while still waiting here for him.... I think....

I said what I meant. 42. As in, "How many roads must a man walk down to find Godot?"

(If you fully understand that reference, you're a true fan. It wasn't in all versions.)
