En novembre, je fais antichambre?

One of the fill-in-the-blanks exercises has a line, "En novembre, je fais antichambre."

What does this mean, (as it's quite foreign to my American sensibilities)??

Hi Drew, 

The expression 'faire antichambre' is used when you would have to wait patiently to have an audience with an important person in the room nearby so it means to be left waiting.

In the rhyming 'en novembre, je fais antichambre'  I suppose it means I am staying patiently indoors.

Hope this helps!
