Dad, what are you doing?

"Working on an important programming project. I've been putting this off for weeks, but today I've finally gotten going."

"That's great. How did you do it?"

"I have an even more important book review due. So now the programming project can progress."

"But... how are you going to get the book review done?"

"Easy: I just need to take on an even more important project, so that finishing the review becomes procrastination. The I'll have it done in a jiffy."
