For example, because my brother is very talkative, indeed he’s a complete chatterbox or as they say in Yorkshire, a chatty catty, I’m always asking him to drink up so I can order another round of drinks at the bar. Interestingly, my mother never has this problem with wine as she’s usually drunk up before anyone has even taken their first sip. What an alcoholic!
It can be used in the context of taking a trip or a holiday as well as the idea of escaping or fleeing something or somebody.
For example, a lot of people get away at Christmas time to visit their relatives in different cities or different countries. Indeed, I’m getting away during the festive season.
By the way, getaway is a noun, which means a trip or a holiday. For example, two weekends ago I went on an adventure getaway to Tarifa.
In addition, it can be used to describe the emotion of being in love. For example, I first fell for Mr George Clooney when I saw him on the hit TV series, ER, and now I fall for him every time I see him in a film or on a commercial.
Seriously, man, woman or vegetable, who can’t fall for those dreamy eyes, that silky voice and his masculine sophistication. As they say in The States, ‘it’s a no-brainer’. I know, I’m so predictable!
For example, I usually read in bed to drop off.
However, if I watch slapstick movies like Mr Bean or Dumb and Dumber I also drop off in a nano second. Yes, I know Mr Bean is an international hit, but in my book it’s one of the worst British exports.
