    dive in

    " Where have you all been? I have lots of pizza waiting for you on the table. Come on dive in"

    OR

    "We dived into a store to take a quick look at the new collection."

    Is it Ok with the use of "dive in"?

    "Dive in"=to go inside quickly?

    Re: dive in

    Yes, they are correct.

    Note punctuation: 'Come on - dive in!'

    Re: dive in

    Just to clarify, they are both OK. In the second, 'dive in' involves a change of physical position. The first sort of 'dive in' involves a small change of position - but not enough for GPS to notice
