It is anticipation. Think about it! Most men have had this experience. An older girl in the neighborhood makes what can be construed as a suggestive innuendo. She plans to meet under the old oak tree with drapes of Spanish moss.
You can only move your food around on your plate. Your whole being is taught with anticipation! You can not chew at all, never mind swallow. You wait for the sun to go down, sneak out the window and station yourself under the tree. Your mind is racing, but it does not know where to go. You must wait a little longer.
Finally, you hear your mother, "Are you out there? What are you doing? It is 10:00. Are you crazy?"
"No Mam! I am just getting some night crawlers. I want to go fishing tomorrow."
When you see the neighbor girl the next day, she says,"Where were you? I waited from 10:30 until midnight!"
