It’s not interesting in the slightest but this round mine was… what is the opposite to T-minus XXX minutes. As in when something is so many minutes/hours past an event. But said in a succinct/polar opposite of T-minus way. 

I don’t think there is an answer as Google just threw up nonsense on me instead of helping me. Or my way of phrasing my question angered the Google god so much it cursed me to never know.

Or the answer is so obvious that I’ll realise tomorrow and cry.

It is definitely going to be obvious. I am so tired. 

You’d never know it was deadline day!

This is actually how both of my grandparents met each other. My dad's mom was a secretary for a military office she went out with the office for a bowling party and met my grandfather when he was home on leave. She mispronounced his nickname which was on his bowling shirt and it became a running joke between them. All the way through their entire marriage. 

My mom's dad was in the US (he was RCAF) visiting a local factory for plane parts, and had been corresponding with my great aunt who a secretary. When he arrived at the office, my grandmother was there visiting her sister. 

Without WW2 neither of my grandparents would have met.

The sad thing is I think I know one or two purely as I took french for so long and then learned a few when I studied abroad. Then picked up a few more last year when I read a romance novel that was set in Ottawa. The author had two characters who had a "dildo" war going on with each other. He covered a wide variety of various words in that novel. LOL
