    I need an explanation

    Hi everybody.

    I'd like to know if these senteces are different meanings...

    A:I'm just chilling ( does it mean that I'm hanging out around the house or I'm relaxing without making some noise?)

    B: I'm hanging around (does it mean that I'm relaxing at home without doing something special and without making some noise?)

    C:I'm screwing around ( does it mean that I'm relaxing and making some noise)

    Am I right? If I'm wrong, could you give me some explanation with some exemples in every context I can find these expressions?


    Thanks .

    Noise has no relevance to any of these. All basically mean that you are relaxing and enjoying yourself, maybe listening to music, maybe drinking, maybe chatting with friends.

    Re: I need an explanation

    thank so much for your explanation, but can you give me some examples or some dialogues by using the verbs I wrote before? ( to chill-to screw around- to hang around)

    Re: I need an explanation

    Your sentences seemed fine.

    A What are you doing tonight?
    B I'm chilling out/screwing around/hanging around with Bob and Sam. Want to join us?
