alix is spontaneous (in her mind)

alix (my pseudo step daughter) said, you know i'm anal about being on time to stuff.
i said, you don't say.
she said, i do say, and i have this whole routine i go through to prepare. it's very precise and everything has to be done in order.
i said, um ... um ... um! you go girl with your bad rigid self!

then she said, but don't get me wrong. i can be spontaneous too ... as long as i get three days notice.
that's when it occurred to me even though our thought processes were quickly parting ways, it was in everyone's best interest to leave well enough alone.

Some things are better left unsaid.
