A: Is there anyone there who's handling her work while she's away?
B: Yes, I am for the moment.
- " I am for the moment" means "I'm handling her work at the moment", right?
C. My son is resistant to have his friends over, so I'll give you some background on my son.
- Why don't we say "some background about my son"?
Thanks a million
1-- Yes, I am [handling her work] for the moment.
2-- Resistant to having. There are many instances in which more than one preposition collocates with a noun or verb. Here, both prepositions (on, about) are used with background; to is also used occasionally.
