Tardy Marty does not recognize time in a linear, finite way. He is bewildered by the concept of "showing up on time" or "running out of time." Whether looking backwards into the past or forward into the future, Tardy Marty sees time as infinite. From his perspective, time has always been, and time will always be. Tardy Marty often muses...
"Because time is infinite, it is impossible for me to run out of it. I, however, am finite, so time will eventually run out of ME. When it does, I shall go out smiling."
Late Kate regards time as a dear friend and ally. In her own words...
Thank you for ripening my favorite fruits and veggies and for aging the cheese I so love in my sandwiches. Thank you for healing me whenever I get hurt. Thank you for always being by my side and for showing me what to leave in the past and what to take with me into tomorrow. My friends nicknamed me "Late Kate" because of all the times they waited for me when I was with you. Thank you most of all for strengthening my friendships.
xoxo, Late Kate
Lefty C. Dupp is a heads-up guy who is always open, and he is a welcome relief for those who take a stand. Conversely, he is a real pet peeve for those who operate from the sitting position. Be that as it may, Lefty is so dang lovable that the sitters are now falling for him in addition to occasionally falling into him.
