APOSTADAY: The Delivery

Still going strong!!!!

The Delivery

Edward sat at his desk, tapping his feet. He glanced up at the clock and saw that only a minute had gone by since he last looked. This only made him more anxious. "It's still not here yet, is it?" His coworker was looking at him with an amused smirk.

"I hate this", replied Edward. He looked at the clock again. "The waiting drives me crazy!" Since he made his order yesterday, he had been anticipating his package's arrival today. Not being one to wait, he even paid a little extra for rush delivery. Edward took a deep breath and went on to the website where he could track his package. "Out on delivery", he read. "10 AM?!" It was now 2 in the afternoon.

"This can't be right. Something's wrong."

"Dude." Edward's coworker was laughing now. "Why are you getting this worked up over a game?"

"It's not the game. It's delivering it on time. It's the principle of it all!"

At that moment the UPS man walked into the office. Edward turned to him, wide-eyed, awaiting his name to be called. The man was carrying a small brown envelope, big enough to contain the game Edward had ordered. He held his breath as he saw the UPS man talk to girl at the front desk and she turned to point towards him. Heart racing, biting his lower lip in anticipation, he slowly stood up to receive the UPS man.

"Edward Cruz?"


"Package for you."

"Uh, thanks."

The UPS man made his way out of the office. Edward sat back down and placed his package gently next to him. All was right with the world once more.
