Cliché: waiting for your ship to come in

(entered for 03.24.06)

Meaning: anticipation. Use examples.
Rewrite 1: waiting for your plane to come in
Rewrite 2: watching the docks for your ship
Rewrite 3: waiting for your package to arrive
Rewrite 4: standing at the
taxi stand
Rewrite 5: hailing a ride to tomorrow

Comment: This can also be somewhat
whimsical, like rewrite 5.
