Hi ho, hi ho

I am at home tonight, working on a deadline, and my phone rings. It is a friend of mine and I tell him I can't talk long because I am working on a deadline for tomorrow. And he says to me "Why do we call them deadlines - they are actually lifelines".

Hey, I like this - I really really like this! It is not about death, it is about life.

Yes, I don't want to speak of deadlines any more, but rather of lifelines.

So, I am working tonight on a lifeline, which, by the way, my friend said can also be referred to as an "optimistic deadline". Hmmm ...
