Default What does everyone think about on stand?

I know this is kind of a stupid question but I have the curiousity of a cat. What goes through ya'lls minds on a long sit with no book or texting etc.
I'm useally for the 1st hour or two playing the hunt out in my mind, different scenarios. Ok if the buck comes out here he'll be facing this direction at so and so yards and I need to place my shot here. If he comes out over here to my left It'll be angling away.........Basically visulizing nice bucks coming at me from different spots and what I'd do.
After around two hours of this I'll start to wonder about work, Trying out a new car wax on my ride, or working on suppin up my car. Again don't know really why I want to know,lol... what gets ya'll by on a long sit?

I often ponder what will be waiting for me on the dinner table when I get home! Also, lately the thought that has popped into my head here in Nebraska is, "I wonder how many mountain lion sightings have been near where I am sitting and why don't I ever see any!" Maybe they got the good stuff that I can't get my hands on or I have no good luck, who knows either way?!?!?
