When I was young and told my mother I'd be there in a minute, it could
easily last a full day. But now when I tell my wife I'm almost there,
I'm almost there, any minute, it may only be about 10 seconds.

Are we talking realtime, female time or your time, after you've
changed the jumpers on whatever piece off equipment you're playing
with now.
