    Re: difficult sentence

    1)I went to party. my partents should get us till tomorrow.
    i don't understand the meaning of sould get us
    It might mean pick us up, but it's hard to tell because the sentence makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. These are my best guesses as to what the sentence might be trying to say:

    I went to a party. My parents should pick us up tomorrow.
    I went to a party. My parents won't pick us up until tomorrow.
    I went to a party. My parents should come by to get us tomorrow.


    Something along those lines. I'm really uncertain of the meaning because this is real slop.

    2)Sneaking off in the middle of the night to go to some
    i don't understand speaking off and why it is in ing form
    Sneaking off just means leaving a place in a sneaky manner, trying hard to avoid detection so that nobody will know you're gone.

    It is used with the -ing because it seems as if it is being used as a noun (gerund) in the sentence. Of course, it's a little hard to be sure because you didn't even bother to quote the whole sentence!

    P.S. Watch the typos. If you make a lot of careless mistakes in your post, it can really make it difficult for people to understand your question.
