[Fwd: Urgency]

Spanish singer Julio Iglesias was on television with British TV host
Anne Diamond when he used the word "mañana" (pronounced "manyana").

Diamond asked him to explain what it meant.

He said that the term means "Maybe the job will be done tomorrow, maybe
the next day, maybe the day after that. Or perhaps next week, next
month, next year. Who really cares?"

The host turned to Mr. Sipho Msontwana who was also on the show and
asked him if there was an equivalent term in his native language.

"Eish, Madam" he replied, "in Xhosa we don't have a word to describe
that degree of urgency."
