When a bad thing happens, but later events render said bad thing irrelevant before it has the chance to do any damage. What’s the word for that then?
Case in point – I left my gi on the washing line, hence it is now soaked and I was wandering what I could scrape together for aikido this eve. But! I now have all the work in the world, which will take until forever, so no wet-gi-concerns for me.
Or, I could just be trying to convince myself that having all the work in the world to be done by tomorrow is a good thing.
