Another useful metaphor...

... for the Post-Work Gargle.

On Monday, The Choirboy reported mid-afternoon that he was likely to have to cry off our planned evening drinks rendezvous because he was badly behind with his work.  I checked in again a few hours later, hoping for better news....

Me:  "Progress?  Light at the end of the tunnel??"

He:  "Oncoming train!!"

Me:  "Yay!  The Martini Express !!!"

Alas, no.  But I feel the expression will have it uses.
