    I had been sitting

    I am wondering if my sentence sounds natural. Would you please correct my mistakes?

    I had been sitting for more than twenty minutes before the waitress remembered to bring me the beer.

    Re: I had been sitting

    Yes, or you could use "was sitting".
    I am not a teacher.
