Only Three Lines

I heard a story on NPR about a French author in the 1940s who wrote news stories that were only three lines long. Although I'm no Félix Fénéon and most people who know/read me would probably tell you that I lean toward the verbose, I like a good challenge. Those two sentences don't count. Here's my day in three lines.
Zane woke Julie up at 6:45 a.m. this morning to discuss his excitement about Karate class and dinner with Daddy. When she was dropped off at school an hour later, Ruby aked Julie not to refer to herself as "Mommy" in front of her friends. Julie spent the day at work, writing and surfing until it was time to go pick up a Craigslist air conditioner and meet the kids at their very messy condo.
