Margin is time


  • I can’t wait to grow up.
  • When will we be there?
  • What time is it?
  • Let me get back to you.
  • Let me check my calendar.
  • I don’t have time.
  • My life is so busy.
  • I can’t wait ‘til Friday.
  • I hate Mondays.
  • I work all the time.
  • I need to get a second job.
  • I need a nap.
  • Life is so stressful right now.
  • I can’t wait to retire.
  • I wish I was young again.
