Knock, knock, knock.
"All my friends?"
Knock, knock, knock.
"All my friends?"
Knock, knock, knock.
"All my friends?"

"I had to leave. They were having fun wrong."

In this 2nd version of "Waiting for Godot", there are no rules beyond the usual S@H general Cafe rules.
So, take a seat. Or whatever.
Just wait for Godot patiently.
Or impatiently.
Examine the gestalt of the existential emptiness.
Or fullness.

Have fun.

(Or hang "on in quiet desperation." I've heard "it's the English way.")

"Stand still laddy!"


Perhaps Godot would only recognize me if I keep moving, causing quantum perturbations?

Aren't you a bit large to cause quantum perturbations?

All but 3 posters may or may not be having fun wrong, but clearly, they are posting in other threads besides this one.

Should have made the title more obvious. Like "Waiting for Godot, act 4"

People just don't like waiting in here. Maybe it's the horrible elevator music.

Only sometimes. Actually, elevators don't bother me much, unless they're overcrowded. I've been stuck in the elevator at work a couple of times and I was okay.

I don't know if Godot would ride and elevator... This might be the wrong place to wait.

I used to be a regular at Science Fiction conventions. I vaguely remember one con where there were not enough elevators in teh hotel, so we spent almost as much time waiting for them as we spent in the meetings. Solution - party at the elevators!

That settles it. I'll be hanging over in the elevator partying while we wait for Godot. If anyone wants to join, bang on the big steel doors. We should be able to fit a keg in there right?

Well, OK. But if Lucky starts dancing again, I'm leaving.
