  •  I am cursed with "always early" (8+ / 0-)

    Growing up, I was always late to school because my mother couldn't get herself going in the morning. I got punished in the principle's office for something that was outside my control. Not pretty.

    I don't know if it's a result of that childhood experience, but I am habitually early for everything. Even when I attempted to be "fashionably late" for the boss's holiday party I was the first person to arrive. I once showed up an hour early for an interview. I planned to find the location and chill until the appointed time. But this was in a high-rise office building in downtown Houston, and as soon as I walked in I was asked who I was there to meet. Unbeknownst to me, they called the guy and sent me up in the elevator. He was there to meet me on his floor, only I didn't know it was him. I asked for directions to the ladies' room.
