    Re: Meaning of some sentences

    1)she came upon somethig.- found by chance
    2)They'll get a buzz out of it.- enjoy, find it exciting
    3)going going gone.- used in auctions to close a sale- so 'going' means you still have a chance, 'gone' means the opportunity has passed
    4)we are just about done.- nearly finished
    5)Bring my pizza and step on it.- be quick
    6)You're both right on the money. - correct
    7)steady on!- calm down
