She stood next to her wall clock, waiting for something to happen.

She = H/A/F, feel free to choose a nice name for her, and she's not me.

Is it relevant where the wall clock is? Is it actually on a wall in her home? Somewhere else?

Is she right in expecting somehing to happen?

Anything relevant about her? Like gender (could it just as well have been a man)? Era? location? Education? Hobbies? Her job? Family? Mental? or physical illness?

kaylee kitteh thinx germin naymz iz smartur...any uf diz iz reluvunt?

Königsberg was the capital of the Province of Prussia from 1701–1773. The city was wracked by plague and other illnesses from September 1709 to April 1710, losing 9,368 people, or roughly a quarter of its populace. On June 13, 1724, Altstadt, Kneiphof, and Löbenicht amalgamated to formally create the larger city Königsberg. Suburbs that subsequently were annexed to Königsberg include Sackheim, Rossgarten, and Tragheim.

Imperial Russian troops occupied eastern Prussia at the beginning of 1758 during the Seven Years' War. On December 31, 1757, Empress Elizabeth I of Russia issued a ukase about the incorporation of Königsberg into Russia. On January 24, 1758, the leading burghers of Königsberg submitted to Elizabeth. Five Imperial Russian general-governors administered the city during the war from 1758–62; the Russian army did not abandon the town until 1763.

After the First Partition of Poland in 1772, Königsberg became the capital of the province of East Prussia in 1773, which replaced the Province of Prussia in 1773.

oar any of dis iz relevunt?

Königsberg was the birthplace of the mathematician Christian Goldbach and the writer E.T.A. Hoffmann, as well as the home of the philosopher Immanuel Kant, who lived there all his life and never travelled more than a hundred miles away from the city. Kant entered the university of Königsberg at age 16 and was appointed to a chair in metaphysics there in 1770 at the age of 46. While working there he published his Critique of Pure Reason (arguing that knowledge of time and space arises as a mental precondition to sensory experience) and his Metaphysics of Morals which argues that virtue is acquired by the performance of duty for its own sake. In 1736, the mathematician Leonhard Euler used the arrangement of the city's bridges and islands as the basis for the Seven Bridges of Königsberg Problem, which led to the mathematical branches of topology and graph theory.

You should investigate how Kant, waiting for him, and an inaccurate clock are related.

Did she simply wait for Kant to pass, as the saying goes that people adjusted their watches after professor's Kant habit of going to school/home at exactly the precise hours each day?

********SPOILER********
The German philosopher Immanuel Kant had a very strict daily routine, he got up at exactly the same time every day, had exactly the same things for breakfast etc. One part of his routine was a walk through the city of Königsberg.
There's an anecdote that people waited for Kant to pass because then they knew what time it was and could adjust their clocks.
