Some People Need To Lighten Up

  I will answer my own Tuesday meme two days late on Thursday. It's called The Better Late Than Never Meme. Appropriate, don't you think?

Warning: There may be sleep-deprived ridiculousness. Take what I blog with a grain of salt today.

On Tuesday I wrote: I'm late! I'm late! For a very important date!" Someone important said that once. He had a point. I forgot to write the Queen's meme yesterday. It happens. I shall report to the dungeon immediately for my punishment. 

The Better Late Than Never Meme
1. Are you always on time or just a tad late?
 I sometimes wish to make an entrance. Tripping and falling are my specialty.

2. Is there someone in your life that irritates you regularly about not being on time?
Yes. My friends who roll their eyes every time I trip and fall into a room making a late entrance. They really need to lighten up?
True story: Just yesterday I was five minutes late for the official company photograph meeting. I ran in to face forty people standing in perfect alignment in a hot sweaty room under hot lights all trying not to move for the photographer while waiting on ME to join them. The photographer smiled and waved as I buzzed by into place. And then I realized I didn't have on the right shirt. I ran out. Changed. Ran back in. Same forty people glaring. I tried to sing for them to lighten the mood but they were not amused. 
People need to lighten up!

3. Can you think of a time when you were late for something and it was REALLY a big deal?
See #2
4. Do prompt perky people irritate you? (oh, that was a Freudian blog slip)
All perky people irritate me. 

5. If you were on your way to work and had five minutes to get there, would you stop in the road to rescue a crossing turtle?
I have done so. What am I supposed to do? Crush a helpless slow-poke just because I'm bigger and have higher order thinking skills?  Maybe I was once a turtle too.


6. Have you ever had to actually punch a time clock?
This is generally a non-violent blog. But if the clock went perky on me I might punch it.

7. What is your standard "excuse" when you are tardy? 
I am late because I had to rescue a turtle.
Works every time.
