Challenge #02064-E240: Evac Under Fire

I'll burn that bridge when I get to it. -- TheDragonsFlame

Gorx halted in mid-step. "Surely the Human phrase is, I will cross that bridge when I get to it. Is it not so?"

Human Warin stopped for hir. "Not today. Keep moving. I'll explain on the way." He waited for Gorx to get moving again. "What I just said is a malapropism. A mixing of metaphorical sayings for humour or -in this case- appropriate action." He broke off to race ahead and clear the next junction. "This is a situation where we deal with problems as we encounter them..."

Explosions went off behind them, causing the emergency safety locks to seal off the corridor they had just traversed. "And make sure the path we just travelled can't be travelled again. Crossing that bridge when we get to it, burning bridges behind us. It's quicker."
