People who say "a few minutes" when they mean "more than an hour" are asking to get shot.

Especially when I'm hungry.

    I am a patient sort of person. If I decide to have a meal with a friend, I can wait a while. I can go over to her place and wait for her to get ready. I can chat with him for a bit. I can even tag along while she runs an errand or shops. But as soon as I call the friend and we decide to have a meal together, my hunger clock starts ticking. And eventually there comes a point when nothing but food matters anymore. At that point, I actually start to get an odd pain in my stomach and begin to feel weak with hunger. After that point, I will be rude and nasty until I am seated with food in front of me.

    It wasn't until recently (after a string of friends-doing-errands meal delays) that I discovered that this point is an exact elapsed time from the moment I decide I should eat. (Okay, the margin of error is probably about +/- 3%.) I don't exactly have double-blind clinical trials of this, but I do have the evidence provided by my cell phone: when I start to get really cranky in these situations, I check my cell to see when I called the friend in question. Without fail, the moment I become really intolerant (and intolerable) is two hours. It's uncanny.

    Okay, I'm done rambling now.

    After nigh on twenty five years my wife has well learned that there are minutes and there are computer minutes.

    When I say I'll just be a minute that is an infinitely extensible amount of time when said from a sitting position in front of a computer, at all other times its just longer than a minute.
