[…] “No„ let’s go now. It’s horrible to be late, don’t you think so, Ruth?”
“No, Ruth is unable to be on time,” said Phil. “If she happens to be early, she’ll do something—wallpaper the bathroom or begin to learn to play the flute—anything to avoid the terrible fate of being on time.”
“How extraordinary, Phil, and you so anxious always about lateness,” Sylvie said. “This must be love at last.”
