There's a first time for everything, I've learned.
As someone who for years hated always being late, I finally embraced tardiness.
My Flippy Friend Jen turned 40 and a mutual friend planned a surprise party for her. However, I was the one surprised as I actually showed up early. 24 hours early to be exact.
The irony is, even if I had arrived on the correct night, I'd still have been 10 minutes late. Because, of course, I got lost.
But I didn't fall down.
