• Pick up
Pick up is a phrasal verb. Phrasal verbs are structures that usually use a verb and a preposition. Adding the preposition changes the meaning of the verb.
Pick up has a few different meanings. It can mean to get something or someone or to answer the phone.
Why did it take so long for you to pick up the phone?
Can you pick up the food before coming home?
Come over is also a phrasal verb. It means to go to someone’s house or to where they are.
Come over when you’re done with work.
I’ll be waiting for you to come over.
Some phrasal verbs can't be separated, some can. There's no specific rule when it comes to that, so you'll understand and memorize them with practice. Here are a few examples:
Look after: I always look after my sister's kids when she travels.
Turn off: Please turn off your phones. Turn them off right now.
Throw away: Don't throw this paper away. It is very important.
Your in-laws are the people related to you not by blood, but by marriage. For example, your partner’s mother is your mother-in-law.
I don’t get along well with my in-laws.
Her sister-in-law was always kind to her.
My brother-in-law and I are going camping this weekend.
• Lose your mind
An expression that means “to go crazy”, “lose control”.
Erica lost her mind when she got the promotion.
Don’t lose your mind overanalyzing things.
I’m going to lose my mind if I have to wait another hour.
That word can have several meanings. The first one is the part of the anatomy referring to the eye. Secondly, it can mean staring intently at something or someone. In this context, it can also mean to guess/measure something using your eyes, without scales or exact measurements.
This recipe doesn’t work if you just eyeball it.
After some time cooking, you get enough experience to eyeball some dishes.
