Use it before a sentence to exclaim surprise and redirection of a train of thought. Do this no more than once a week and it can add useful emphasis to your communication efforts.

Or, use it before every other sentence as the new like. This way it does nothing at all, but will drive old people nuts and make you sound like a reality show super star.
Dad: Let's have pancakes for dinner.

Kid: Wait. Did you say we are having pancakes for dinner?

Dad: Wait for what? Yes, a whole breakfast for dinner!

Kid: Wait. Can I invite Carly over for pancakes?

Dad: What are we waiting for? No, Carly is irritating.

Kid: Wait. Can we have hash browns too?

Dad: Why are we still waiting? Yes, hash browns are delicious.

Kid: Wait. Carly loves hash browns!

a phrase taken from the precog in the hit film "Minority Report"; the "now" was added to have some form of finality, which Spielberg forgot to add. When playing Mario Kart 64, or Foosball, it might be necessary to say this phrase in order to time your shot correctly.
(During an intense game of Mario Kart 64 or foosball) Wait, wait, wait, NOW!
