Be late for Something Day!
Happy Be late for Something Day!
Sometimes it’s good to be late for something. Isn’t it?

It is better to get somewhere a little later but with a smile. It’s not the best idea to arrive sharp on time but breathless, dishevelled or in a bad makeup.
And believe me, I do hate to wait. Stupid five minutes stretches in time that runs slower and slower with each passing second.
Lack of punctuality is widely regarded as shameful. People who must wait usually feel offended and disregarded.
However, sometimes it is good to relax a bit, smile and not run against the clock.
Take a deep breath, check your hair in the mirror again, fix a tie, talk to a neighbour, pet a dog or a cat.
If you know you’re going to be late, send a text – “I’ll be there in 10 minutes”. It works very well for me – I know that the person I am waiting for is on a way, that he appreciates me waiting, and that I have 10 minutes for coffee or anything else.
It turns out that today is the “be late for something” day – a holiday that I think is quite pleasant.
There are things that we are absolutely not late for: a plane, a train, a date (mainly for guys), a job interview and to a theatre play. Nothing more comes to my mind today…
When I’m in Poland, I take a concept of “sitting at home” very seriously. And that means writing, reading, watching TV series, sitting by the fireplace and petting my cat, or a ladies-night with neighbours.
It was well after dark and I have already started to get into Halloween spirit. Being in a spooky mood, I have visited the Tram Museum.
Have you got always more to do, never enough time to do it, and no time to calm down?
If you do just one thing, spend just 15 minutes more, you will be finally able to relax, right?
