One-Liner Wednesday: On Being Late


Sometimes being late is right on time.

Sometimes late is late. I have to admit that up front, because I tend to run late. I stay up late. I like to sleep late. I was a late bloomer. Often I’ll get to a WP neighbor’s blog post late, but it seems to be right when I needed to read it. I was generally on time for work – thank God I don’t have that obligation anymore. I’m on time for doctor appointments which I try to schedule in the afternoon. I’m on time for church since my husband is a morning person and my awareness that he likes to be early nudges me along.

We were both in our 50s when the love of my life found me again. That seems late in life, but it was right on time. I had promised myself I’d stop looking for a partner until after my daughter graduated from high school. The day after her graduation ceremony is when my high school sweetheart found me again. It took 39 years of learning and growth for us to be ready to meet again. (Click my book cover on the sidebar if you want to learn more.)

I’m planning to share the FB message David sent me on Sunday or Monday. He says he sent it on Sunday June 13, 2011. FB says June 14. I’ll probably go with David. He’s always on time.

  1. A friend and I were just discussing the cosmic on-timeless of mysterious latenesses yesterday/tomorrow! Haha! πŸ€ͺπŸ™πŸΌπŸ‘Œ

  2. I tend to be an on-time person except like you, JoAnna, I can be very late to others’ blog posts. And I like to sleep in late during the winter months. And sometimes I am late because retired people shouldn’t have to rush! πŸ˜‰

  3. I try to be bang on time – even to the extent of hanging about a bit when I am early πŸ™‚

  4. I think I’m more like your husband. I like to be on time or early for just about everything. On the other hand, I have learned that sometimes, delaying something is a good idea.

  5. I so agree. Sometimes, late is right on time. It certainly seems to work for me and snail mail. πŸ˜€

  6. I feel this. Everything about my internal clock has shifted later which works well now that I have teens.

    • There are so many changes with having teens. The way I remember, there was never a dull moment, for me, anyway. I’m glad the shift is working well. πŸ™‚
