And the last shall be first

I hope so. Lately, I've found myself joining a long line only to have no one get behind me until I made it to the front. So, if I had waited the X minutes to join the line, it would have been non-existent.

At the Trail Blazers memorabilia stand at the Rose Garden two weeks ago.

At the Northwest ticket counter in Minneapolis this past weekend.

At a lunchtime pizza restaurant yesterday.

Doesn't three times make a trend? If so, I may just take my days slower and hope to find no lines anywhere. That gets me thinking -- when we happen upon a no-line situation, did we just avoid a long wait, or was there never a line? I suppose the optimists will tell you one thing and pessimists another.
