Priorities

The Doktah was feeling overwhelmed with her laundry list of tasks to complete. In addition to her regular experiments, she was also working on a paper submission, an abstract for a conference, and one of The P.I.’s grants. Since there was no way she could finish everything that week, she asked The P.I. which things had the most priority.

“Everything’s a priority,” he told her.

Ah. Thanks so much.

From American Heritage Dictionary:

Priority: Precedence, especially established by order of importance or urgency. An order.

Apparently, he didn't understand the definition, since it requires some sort of ordering of the tasks.
