Forty little grey cells, living two millimeters left of my retina, concluded that temporary is a great-grandchild of “tempus fugit.” I am not saying there is any basis in fact regarding that conclusion, but it sounds good and I like it.
- temporary job-a job that flees after a short time
- temporary lover-a lover that flees after a brief time
- temporary cash flow problem-long term debt
And so it goes.,
