Origin: Unknown, but wiktionary (yeah, not likely a credible source) has: Borrowed from Latin, from the verse Georgica which was written by the Roman poet Virgil which is sed fugit interea fugit irreparabile tempus (“but it flees meanwhile: irretrievable time flees”) which has the less literal translation "while, the irreplaceable time escapes".

Now YOU come up with a sentence (or fic? or graphic?) that best illustrates the word.
