6.
A common term used generally by woman (In there own language) to represent the word 'hour'. The word is designed to confuse the male partner in order to provide the mentally impossible challange of figuring out how the woman is arguing against the undeniable fact that she actually took at least 1 hour to do something in which she said she would only take 1 minute to do, hense the representation
Woman: "I'll just be a minute"

(1 hour later)

Man: "Fuck hun its been at least an hour"
Woman: "Bullshit I only took one minute did you not hear what i said?"
