A celebration for my new acquisition

Wednesday, June 17 2015. It's 12:56:00pm. Sitting on the toilet. Fully clothed, mind you. Sink faucet has been open and running since 12:55:59pm. My thumb is hovering and I've been going back and forth between 550.00 or 590.00, knowing that 590.00 is my absolute max but I'm pushing for 600.00 anyways. The tally so far has stopped ticking up, finally resting at 510.00 at 12:54pm. Thumb hovering.
12:56:32, 12:56:33, no change. All I can hear is the sink, and my pulse as the rush starts to mount. 510 is there, solid and unchanging. I think, someone's either really good or really overconfident. 12:56:48, 12:56:49. Still early. It ends at 12:57:00 and I'm not overconfident so I'm not running the risk that someone else is just like me. Sitting on the toilet. Fully clothed, mind you.
I have been watching for 4 days. Waiting. Not interacting or participating. Just watching. Waiting. Saliva begins to taste like steel. 12:56:54, 12:56:55, the time to strike is now. Thumb is no longer hovering and descends to press Submit. 12:56:57, Confirm. A load screen, heart is fully in the throat wondering, did it work? It's an iPad 1st gen I'm on and it's very likely it didn't make it in time. 12:57:00 and a confirmation message that says "Bid Submitted, You are now in the lead!", then a second later another banner that says "You Won!". I won...I won?...OH MY GOD I WON!
I won.
