If you remember, a few weeks ago I wrote about the English word for “3 times”, which is “thrice”. Do not confuse it with today’s word, “TRICE” (without an “h”).
“TRICE“ is often found in the phrase IN A TRICE , meaning “in a very short time”. For example, when your boss next asks you for a document and you want to impress him/her, just say that it’ll be on their desk IN A TRICE. So put the coffee down, stop checking your Facebook account, pick up that document and with the reflexes of Usain Bolt, sprint off to the boss’s office. Congratulations, you’ve completed the task IN A TRICE!
So, when was the last time you needed to do something IN A TRICE? What made it so urgent?
