A popular saying in English is: seize the day! That means that you should make the most of the day ahead of you, that you should grab it! It’s important not to waste time.
Grab is a very useful little word not only because people use it all the time, (really!) but also because it’s a simple way to ask or tell someone to pick something up. For example, if you see that there is only one more pair of sunglasses left, and you really like them, you can say: grab those please!
Here are some more examples:
- You really need to grab this opportunity because it disappears.
- My son grabbed his toy and ran away to the other side of the park.
- Charlie, our dog, grabbed the stick and ran with it.
- When you’re in the shop, could you grab some strawberries before they sell out?
- Quick, grab the ball!
