    live out

    "Stoney liked to live out every day"

    1.Does 'out' mean outside? (i.e. opposite of staying home)

    2. Is 'live out' common usage?

    Thanks

    Re: live out

    Hi, Soup.

    Based on the definition, confusions are still.

    Stoney liked to live out every day. = Stoney liked to survive every day.

    Does it make sense to you? It seems to me Stoney had quite a good time there. Remember the lyrics: Stoney, happy all the time.... The joy you find in living everyday .....

    Can you explain more?


    Happy new year to you again. How's life in China?
