Um, I don't mean to be insulting or anything, but I do want to make
sure that you are aware of Samuel Beckett's play _Waiting for Godot_?
It's quite well-known.  The two main characters spend the whole play
standing around waiting, and the title character never does appear.
My impression is that Brust was riffing on that.
