are you late?

please write here times that you have been late, to appointments, parties, movies, concerts, whatever. there may be several times that i missed important opening statements and conversation because i was busy parking. i was quite late to the Cal Berkeley wedding reception last night at the Claremont Hotel in Oakland, where the bar was not open and the music was just dying down. many blacktie guests were milling around. i spent a long time talking to a couple of Cal Alumn. got a wine glass. but i was just a little tired, so i left.

when have YOU been late ?

i'm never late for anything. well, almost never. like 99% of the time. i used to have to rely on my mom to drvie me places, and she's always running late. so i decided that i hate being late, but instead i end up early for everything...i hate being early...i like being in time.

I'm always on time for everything, so I don't miss whatever is going on.

I used to always be on time, then I had kids. The sad thing is that I picked up the bad habit of being late when they were little and now it doesn't bother me if I'm a couple minutes late. I really need to correct that.

I'm never late to anything, not even to class! I always get to appointments at least 10 mins early. Punctuallity is definitely the key!

oh am i! i've been late the past few days, and i'm starting to think it is time to crack out the old know, the "error-proof test." i don't like surprises when it comes to making babies.

I'm always early...if I show up right on time, I consider that to be late.

I used to work on campus with a few international students from Kenya named Irene, Chris, and Eunice. Chris and Eunice were dating, and Eunice wanted Irene and I to help throw a surprise party for him. I was in charge of picking up the cake, and I also volunteered to get chips and pop. She told me to be at her apartment at 6:00.

Being ever so punctual, I showed up at 5:45...nobody was home. I ended up sitting in the hall outside of their apartment door until after 7:00. When Eunice arrived, she laughed and said, "You have now learned that Kenyans have no concept of time."
