Duncan had gone past the numb posterior stage of boredom and had passed into the uncontrollable yawning stage. He tried to hide them by studying his notepad and making copious notes. The session was going to over run. The speaker was one of those people who you knew was going to over run five minutes into their talk. Duncan passed the time by revising his estimate of how late the session would finish. Although the schedule implied that role play would take place in the session after coffee and Duncan did not like that idea at all. As far as he was concerned if he had wanted to act he would have gone to RADA.
Finally the session seemed to be drawing to a close.
