1. K’s flamenco dress rehearsal, WHILE LATE, actually went just fine. I was glad to see it. I love my daughter, and think she is just the awesomest kid.
2. While I behave perfectly calmly when people run late, I do not feel calm. It is a side effect of my job that the higher-stress a situation is (or I think it is) the calmer and calmer I act. But I Do Not Like other people’s lateness. the only thing I dislike more than that is my own lateness.
3. Talking about food and exercise with people one doesn’t know well is tricky. I am on a number of comms and groups that all approach these discussions differently. I linked a post from one site, a post that I thought was funny (another conversational red flag!) to another site.
Sigrid: Humor is always very tricky. These are very sensitive subjects. Don’t be an ass, even merely by linking to a post someone else wrote.
