Merely towards the inside of an indefinite period of time.

Just in Time

I like this phrase, although I often wonder what it really means. We take it to mean that you arrived or completed something within a few minutes of it being accepted. But think about the words. I mean realllllly think about them. Below I have listed the definitions of each word:


  • merely: and nothing more; “I was merely asking”; “it is simply a matter of time”; “just a scratch”; “he was only a child”; “hopes that last but a moment”
  • precisely: indicating exactness or preciseness; “he was doing precisely (or exactly) what she had told him to do”; “it was just as he said–the jewel was gone”; “it has just enough salt”
  • only a moment ago; “he has just arrived”; “the sun just now came out”
  • used especially of what is legally or ethically right or proper or fitting; “a just and lasting peace”- A.Lincoln; “a kind and just man”; “a just reward”; “his just inheritance”
  • absolutely; “I just can’t take it anymore”; “he was just grand as Romeo”; “it’s simply beautiful!”
  • equitable: fair to all parties as dictated by reason and conscience; “equitable treatment of all citizens”; “an equitable distribution of gifts among the children”
  • barely: only a very short time before; “they could barely hear the speaker”; “we hardly knew them”; “just missed being hit”; “had scarcely rung the bell when the door flew open”; “would have scarce arrived before she would have found some excuse to leave”- W.B.Yeats
  • fair: free from favoritism or self-interest or bias or deception; conforming with established standards or rules; “a fair referee”; “fair deal”; “on a fair footing”; “a fair fight”; “by fair means or foul”
  • exactly at this moment or the moment described; “we’ve just finished painting the walls, so don’t touch them”;


  • inch: a unit of length equal to one twelfth of a foot
  • in(p): holding office; “the in party”
  • indium: a rare soft silvery metallic element; occurs in small quantities in sphalerite
  • in(a): directed or bound inward; “took the in bus”; “the in basket”
  • to or toward the inside of; “come in”; “smash in the door”
  • Indiana: a state in midwestern United States
  • currently fashionable; “the in thing to do”; “large shoulder pads are in”

Indicating precision or exactness, directed or bound inwards towards the 4th coordinate that is required (along with three spatial dimensions) to specify a physical event. – Just in Time

Hmmm. Interesting.

Another thing I find interesting is the term ‘aw naw!’

Both aw and naw are colloquialisms and replace oh and no, but its not like I walk about saying naw instead of no. I always use no, unless I’m texting and transferring it via a put on Scottish dialect to text. Yet I always say, ‘aw naw’ instead of ‘oh no’ as the phrase itself has come to belong in my vocabulary in its own right.
