- For Teachers
Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?
Jenny got to her feet.”I’m in a big hurry now. I’ve got to go somewhere and pay a call before it gets too late.”
pay a call = pay a visit
Thank you for your efforts.
"pay a call" (euph) = to go to the toilet.
I shouldn't have pigged out last night. I'd better pay a call before we go out.
