Remember that when the friend who agreed to meet vou downtown for lunch at 12 sharp, isn't there when you arrive at. live minutes past. Instead of tapping your heels, watching the clock, and wearing yourself out with ycur own impatience, start doing something. Planning a menu, making out a shopping list, mentally re- cieco rating the Jiving room, or just watching people who PIM.S liutli Millet! ten a bureau drawer, or listen to your favorite recordings. But most of all. remember it when you have a Jong spell of waiting on your hands. Then is the time to get busj- with something else. You can »e patient then—for you'll be doing, not waiting.
