We are in our Friday afternoon stretch. Only a few more hours and then a 4 day weekend. Any plans?
Our phrase for today is, wait up.
This has two meanings. The first meaning is to stay awake later than usual because you are waiting for someone to come home. The second meaning is a command you can use to have someone stop or slow down for you.
I have to work late tonight. Are you going to wait up for me?
A. Do you want me to wait up for you?
B. No, don't bother. I have so much work to do. I won't get home till after midnight.
Tell Jennifer not to wait up. I'll be later than usual tonight.
Example 4 (Command)
Hey Tom, wait up! I'm coming.
