Why, in an era of cell phones, do people still stop by unannounced? And consistently, they do it at the most inconvenient times. Like when you have started 15 projects simultaneously and have laundry in various stages of being sorted and folded all over every surface in the living room, papers to file all over the dining table, dishes piled in the sink, the bathroom still a mess from your baby’s last bath, and you’re dressed in old, raggy clothes with paint in your hair because you’re trying to steal the few minutes the baby is asleep to get a little more painting in.
