Pococurante Dawn

Last week I was in the airport in the early early morning. The sun hadn't even risen yet. I sat by the big window looking over the landing and takeoff strip and each minute the sky got a little bit lighter.There was a woman standing in front of the big window looking intently at the spot where the sun would rise at any moment. A minute passed by. Five minutes. Ten minutes. She was still standing there, waiting to see the sun peak over the horizon. Finally, the top edge of the sun poked up and brilliant sunlight immediately flooded the entire terminal. It was actually pretty impressive. I quickly looked over at the woman who had been standing there for such a long time to see what her reaction would be.

This is what she said:


And then she walked away.

I've never heard "pococurante" before. Looked it up on and pushed the button to hear it pronounced. Thanks for a new word!
