Impatience

Nobody asked but …

It is understandable to be impatient with organizations such as the American Cancer Society, since they have been talking about getting rid of a disease for over half a century.

It is understandable to be impatient with institutions such as the Pentagon or the United Nations for they have claimed a goal of peace, for seven decades in the latter case, for a quarter of a millennium in the former case (the American military industrial government complex).

But it is not understandable to be impatient with any one of your freely chosen 1-to-1 associations.  It is only through cosmically scaled improbability that one even knows the other.  How dare the one to presume to be the other’s keeper?
