A to Z Challenge
One of my pet peeves is tardiness. I despise when I’m late for an event or pre-scheduled appointment, which is not very often. In fact, as a result of my disdain for belatedness, I’m classically ten or so minutes early. In my mind, constant delays show a lack of respect for another person’s time.
Therefore, as a result of my disparagement for dillydallies, I’ve created a list of ridiculous reasons for pokiness. Okay, here we go and just so you know, these could very well happen in my house:
1.) Angel-Kitty wasn't finished with her breakfast yet.
2.) Hurricane ran out the door to romp with Ripley and had to be chased around
3.) I didn’t want to be accused of being the principal’s pet so I began acting out by being late.
4.) I got lost on my way to work. Yeah, I know I only live one mile down the road but my husband was showing me a new way to get there!
5.) My son burned his pop tart in the frying pan and dropped a gallon of milk on the floor.

jollier than the people who have to wait for them.”

Hmmmmm, perhaps I should try this method~
