Hurry Up! is always at least 15 minutes early everywhere she goes. She sets her clock 18 minutes ahead of normal time and then her alarm clock 30 minutes earlier than the time she HAS to get up. She is often heard saying things like: “let’s get the show on the road”, “come on let’s go”, ”wouldyahurryup already”, “I’ve been waiting for hours”, and “what took you so long?”. Hurry Up! is one of THOSE people who slams her mouse up and down to make the computer go faster, decorates for Christmas BEFORE Thanksgiving, and buys schools supplies in July. Hurry Up! wants every holiday, event, milestone, and special day to be here now, and then during the moment she is of course thinking about the next one coming up so she hardly gets to enjoy any of it at all.
WAIT is of course 15 minutes late. So it really helps that all of his clocks are set ahead of normal time – people hardly notice his tardiness. He sets his alarm clock on the dot of one hour before he has to be anywhere and then he hits snooze without worrying about it. He is often heard saying things like: “don’t worry, they’ll wait”, “we have plenty of time”, “there are always 15 minutes of previews”, and “I’m on my way”. WAIT thoroughly enjoys himself all of the time and never looks ahead into the future or worries about it.

Both Hurry UP! and WAIT sleep no more than 4 hours a night. The other 2-3 hours are spent thinking about where to put each and every piece of furniture in the new house and imaging the memories that will be made. Hurry UP! wants the move day to just get here already so she can get everything just right and change her name to RELAXED and WAIT is trying to enjoy the last days of living in a log cabin but secretly dreams of re-naming himself NOW.
This is going to be the longest month ever. I wonder if the people I live with can live out of boxes for four weeks without touching a single thing?
HA! I was having a little daydream for a second there.
