A Handful of Hours
July 7, 2017 2:46pm CST
The young fellow at Best Buy told me my laptop would be ready in a "handful of hours." Well, I am not sure how many hours are in a "handful of hours," but that "handful of hours" response to a wait-time question sure would come in handy for those who haven't a clue as to how many hours a particular job will take. On the other hand, perhaps those who have very large hands can hold a substantial amount of hours in their hands, which would lead to a long wait for the customer. And, I suppose those with small hands would most likely have the job completed in fewer hours than the large-hand folks. I do wish I had gotten a look at the young person's hands to get an idea of how many hours I will have to wait until my laptop is ready for pickup.

Ha ha ha, just like the slang words in our rural village. When a visitor who walked through the sloping mountains and asked where is the village, the villager will just answer "just there"... but that 'just there' answer would take 2 more hours of walking before reaching the village.
