a day late and a movie short.

Standard

  excited to see a new film

(one of my favorite things to do)

i arrived precisely

at the designated time and place

(with time to meet up, buy tickets, grab a ‘movie-buttered’ popcorn, chatter a bit, and find our seats)

only to discover

that i had organized it so that

we were precisely

24 hours late for the show.

p.s. i really do make every effort to be on time for things 

but this has also happened

with a holiday party i was really excited to attend

a few years back

 is this a pattern?  see below –

a day late and a trifle short.
