I know I'm on borrowed time.
What does this mean?
Cambridge Int'l. Dict. of Idioms:
Random House Unabridged Dict.
In a TV series that depicts a group of survivors struggling for their lives in a zombie-infested post apocalyptic world, some of them are destined to be killed or feasted upon by zombies. That's how a zombie show works and keeps the plot moving. Suppose there's a character I believe will die in one way or another at the end of this season, is it okay to say," She's a good actress. But her character is on borrowed time."
