My partner has a tendency to say, “I was just killing time” when I apologize for interrupting something being read or watched. My response is to mutter, “Murderer.”
In all seriousness, that statement does tend to bother me. Another careless remark I hear is “time is free.” No, I argue, it’s the most precious commodity we have.
On that note, it’s time I get writing. It's National Novel Writing Month and fifty thousand words aren't going to write themselves.
What’s your favorite time waster?
