  • "Marion , we are leaving in 20 minutes!" , I said for the third time, knowing it takes that kind of prodding and herding to get our household of 5 women out the door on time.

    Marion had been sitting on the couch for the last 20 minutes splitting her dead ends looking a bit crazy as she fished through her long blonde strands for a ripe one. This was a scene I'd seen many times before and harassed her about,"Marion it's not good for you hair and it's a waste of time".

    Again I felt the need to barge into her, "Mare, what are you even doing?"

    And without a blink away from her project she stated , "I'm just relaxing".

    It's 12:50 and we are slated to leave in 10. We will see if she is ready.
