    We used to have to give our dog his insulin at specific times. Legit excuse to be late or to leave early.

    I'm sure your shoes are too small for me. I can inject things other than humour, too.

    I hate being late for anything. I leave early for everything. The last time I was late for something was years ago. I was either 19 or 20. My girlfriend at the time and I were going  a family gathering of her’s. This woman will be late for her own funeral. She was the stereotypical has to change outfits and her hairstyle a few times. Her makeup had to be perfect. When we finally arrived I simply said, “You know whey we’re late. You’ve known her longer than I have.” Everyone knew. I didn’t date her for too long. Her self-absorbed personality coupled with her obsession with her appearance drove me nuts. Since then I have dated women who don’t wear makeup or wear very little.

    Late for her own funeral???  That is hilarious!! If you ever cross paths before her funeral, please  tell her someone else be doing her make-up and hair if she is planning on an open-casket.  They will have to do a rushed-job because she thought she could do it better!  
    Too funny Rizz and I'm glad you don't date her any more.

    I never hated her. She drove me insane and I found her personality obnoxious. She was superficial, a trait I never was fond of.

    The word or thought of "hate" on anyone's behalf didn't come into play my friend.  I was saying how funny the statement is while she was so self-absorbed.  It's o.k. if you two didn't mesh.  You weren't made for each other and  that is cool. Most of us have had a person we thought might work and haven't.
    Sometimes the chemistry just isn't there.
    I simply liked your analogy. :) :)

    I'm tellin' ya' right here and now.. Hollywood (without traffic) is 25 minutes away at best.  I've made it to "The Laugh Factory" in less  but that was in an Austin Healey. 
    I've seen stand-up live, and you have it! 
    If I were an agent but even since I'm not.... I still might be able to pull some strings.  I know you are in England or somewhere there about but I really think you've got a talent that could be absorbed, BIG TIME out here on the West Coast. 
    I say this from a Consumer and a person of interest and reason.  And a person who knows people who know people.  You are flat-out funny, consistently.
     Happy! Happy!

    I organise myself to be on time; the only thing that could delay me is the unexpected.

    I give the reason, whatever the truth is - and don't treat it as an excuse.
