Dorothy is Notoriously Late

Dorothy is notoriously late
Because she wants to make an entrance?
Heck no.

Relatives lie to her and tell her things start an hour earlier
So she will be almost on time, and she still gets there late.
Smirking inside to herself.

Dorothy is not trying for attention
She does not like people even if they are related
Maybe especially if they are related

She only shows up to dissuade Diamond, her obnoxious sister
If she did not show, Diamond might come to her home to get her. 
Heavens to bits that would happen!

Diamond works for the Health department.
She might blow the whistle on Dorothy’s comfortable hoarder house nest.
Worse, she might take away her six dogs and twenty-nine hundred cats.
Dorothy sighs, knowing she had better show.
