Dear teachers,

Would you be kind enough to tell me whether I am right with my interpretation of the expression in bold in the following sentence?

Joining our group, Diana was avid for action. “Look” she said to Roger, “I want to give you a real party. We can clear the decks here and lay it on for later tonight.”

clear the decks = prepare, make/get ready for action

Thanks for your efforts.

Regards,

V

Hi,

First of all you should know that I'm not a teacher, so I'm not so sure about my answer. I think you are right about the expression below.
