- For Teachers
Marsha saved money all year so she could live it up her summer vacation.
Does "live it up" refer to "live a good luxurious life?" If not, what does it mean? Thanks.
Those who have lots of money can probably 'live it up' far better than we poor teachers can! However, 'live it up' is such a relative term that it means different things to different people.
For example, the indigent homeless person might be 'living it up' when he visits a shelter and receives a shower and a free hot meal. He isn't spending a lot of money but he is enjoying something that he may not often get to do.
After a busy month of working in a steamy and stifling large city, an office worker might spend a weekend at the beach where he can 'live it up' by sitting by the shore, drinking his very cold six-pack of beer, and watching the gals in bikinis smile at him! For him, this is 'living it up'.
Seriously, your explanations and examples are very good, clear and to the point. You set a high standard.
Surah Baqarah, verse 133 of the Holy Koran reads: When his Lord said to him, "Surrender" he replied, "I have surrendered to the Lord of the Universe."
Consider yourself enlightened!
Thank you for solving the username mystery. I learn something new every day!
After reading your post, I googled Surah Baqarah and found some interesting information. Did you intend to type 'verse 131' instead of 'verse 133' of the Holy Koran? In verse 131 I found: Pickthal:When his Lord said unto him: Surrender! he said: I have surrendered to the Lord of the Worlds.
