not only does it sound adorable, its useful!

I’ll be back in a jiffy is a common phrase I use frequently sure im not some 1930s 10 year old, and yea it sounds really juvenile but whatever I like the word, so today when I learned that a jiffy is an actual unity of time smarty mc smart smarts use, mind blown.
In physics a jiffy is the amount of time it takes light to hit a predetermined thing. So if I shined a flashlight onto my wall a jiffy is the amount of time it would take… awesome!
