A song by Bowling for Soup That I would say almost everyone could relate to.
I aaallllmost had you,
but I guess that doesn't cut it.
I aaallllmost had you,
and I didn't even know it.
You kept me guessin'
and now I'm destined
to spend my time missin' you.
I almost wish you would've loved me too.

Not quite; close to reaching a certain point.
Willy was almost ready to leave, but remembered that he needed to get his shoes shined.

A word that doesn't count except in horseshoes, hand grenades, and goverment work. (Also associated with the words, "close," "nearly," and "just about.")
We almost made it.

I almost won the powerball.

Failed potential.

To come to the brink of something beautiful but just fall short of it.
We almost made it.

It is supposed to mean "nearly" or "not quite", but alot of people would use it too mean "20+ mor minutes". in other words, "almost" can sometimes indicate a delay in a certain action.
"I'm almost finished cutting this man's hair, you're next!!"

20 minutes later:

"Dude, you told me 20 minutes earlier that you was almost done cutting this man's hair! WTF!!??!!!"

"sorry. I'm done now"
