    someone takes a long time

    Hi,

    I really don't want to take .......... .

    The key is: a long time

    I've come across this question on the Internet but could not understand what the sentence means.

    Thanks.

    Re: someone takes a long time

    Which part don't you understand? Maybe this dialogue will help:

    John: How long do you want take choosing your clothes for the party tonight?
    Jane: I really don't want to take a long time. Shout at me if I take longer than 20 minutes choosing an outfit!
    John: Ha ha! OK, I will!
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
