    wait a little

    I need a couple of examples of sentences similar to 'Please wait a little' where a little follows a verb. It turned out to be a difficult task, so far I could come up only with 'I miss him a little' and no more. Is verb + a little really so rare in sentences? Could you help me and think of some?

    P.S. Just as I was writing, it struck me with think a little, perhaps, there are some more?

    If I were a native speaker of English, I would never shut up. :-)

    Re: wait a little

    Please move a little.
    He should sleep a little.
    You're not trying. At least try a little!
