    Smile drop by at anytime to drop off that stuff.

    I'll be home all night, so you can stop by at anytime to drop off that stuff.


    I presume "drop off" refer to "deliver/give me" in the above. If not, what does it mean? Thanks.

    Re: drop by at anytime to drop off that stuff.

    drop off = leave = deliver are pretty much the same except to drop off implies that the items will be left even if there is no one there to receive the items. Whereas deliver implies that that there will be someone there to receive the items. IMHO

    Thanks, Carl, for the sensible explanation.

    By the way, your smile is brighter than sunshine.
