Sentence: Joel knew it would look ridiculous to the non-believers, but he didn't care. Tickets for the band didn't go on sale for another three days. He remembered the last time he waited for the latest video game console to come out -- he took his time and got there 36 hours before the release date and was 9th in line. He wasn't going to let that happen again. He was going to anticiwait as long as it took to be first in line.

Etymology: Anticipate + wait
