Before Too Long. Day 269.

For my job, I read and write a lot. I encounter many words and phrases that I’ve heard my whole life, colloquialisms and informal speech.

Today, I saw one that I’ve seen before: “Before too long.”

I know what it means, but when I actually read it, I became amused.

So, whatever you’re waiting for will happen before you would say, “That took too long.”

Silly observation, I know, but it offers me an easy write today, and a small laugh.

  1. Dear Teri,
    “Before too long, I hope to hear from you”!!! (Just kidding, of course!!! We know how very busy you and the boys are these days)… We understand, and when time allows, we’ll hear from you, I’m sure…
    Uncle Lee 🙂
