Time O'Clock

"Mom? When's dad getting home?"

"He should be here in about twenty minutes."

"That's too long."

"It's not so long."

"How many seconds is twenty minutes?"

"Well... 1,200 seconds."

"That's way more than 10 seconds."

"It is."

"How many seconds has that been? Is he home yet? It's been a lot of minutes. Definitely more than half a second. It's been at least three seconds."
