Jimbo: Wait, Mimi...what happened next?

Mimi: Beysbawl tawk trafik deelay!
Tsk tsk adults can be so selfish :p
That happened to me a lot. I would just lay down and take a nap to see if they would notice
Beys Bawl, indeed…
I grew up in the midwest where when the family was visiting friends and one of my parents announced “Well, we gotta go” and they stood up to leave, it could still take 45 minutes to get out the door, the conversation was still going. Getting off the porch would take another 15 minutes. After 10 minutes in the car, the conversation was still going. After starting the car, the conversation would still be going another maybe 8 minutes before finally pulling away… Drove us kids nuts!
I’ve never seen Mimi w/ such an angry look on her face!
That’s something that never changes, no matter how old you get; you’ll be needing to go somewhere, and the person providing the ride is talking with someone either in person or on the phone, resulting in you being late.
I’m a member of a club where our meetings are over by 5 PM, but we can stand in the parking lot – REGARDLESS OF THE WEATHER – and talk for another 30-45 minutes.And that’s the ones who are in a hurry to leave; I don’t KNOW about the ones who dawdle…!
Beysbawl tawk sometimes lasts as long as baseball games!
Well, they could always tawk Beys Bawl and walk at the same time, yes?
When we’d visit my grandmother, my mom would say goodbye and we knew it would be another half hour before we’d leave.
My husband tends to socialize and socialize and SOCIALize on the way out the door, esp. if it’s Fuut Bawl Tawk or some technical stuff he’s bursting at the seams about. I’ll eventually get a handful of his shirt and tug, gently. He’s pretty cool about that – I think he may welcome the excuse to make a clean getaway. If it’s COMPANY who’s leaving too slowly, that’s a different matter. My father used to bring overstayers their coats and hats, and say, “I’m sorry you have to go . . .”
