This one strikes me funny, because Ric is sometimes the very example of patience and others, not so much. For example, Ric enjoys playing video games, and I have watched him replay a single section a dozen times or more as he navigates the obstacles, memorizes the necessary steps, and ultimately completes the task. Me, I would check out after one or two tries.
On the opposite side of that coin, Ric absolutely cannot keep a secret if that secret is a gift for someone else. He has exactly zero patience. He used to give me a present the same day it arrived, even if the occasion was still weeks away. I thought that was bad enough. Now? He'll tell me about it the moment he buys it online. It's not even in house, yet, and Ric has to say something or he'll burst.
Master of Patience? Yes and no.
