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.
