Cardinalities of never

So there are cardinalities of infinity, like aleph-0, which are the natural numbers, and so on.

I think there are also cardinalities of "never". I heard somebody say to a kid the other day.

Junior, you will never get to play with that toy again.

I think that's a fairly low cardinality of never -- say, 5 minutes.

Is there a theory here to explain levels of "never"?
