457. Just popping to the shops
© Bruce Goodman 10 January 2015
I’m just popping to the shops to get a few things. Anything you want?
Not that I can think of.
We need some wine and some onions. I can’t think of anything else.
Yes, just wine and onions. Have you made a list?
I don’t need a list. It’s just the couple of things.
Take the phone.
I’m just popping to the shops. I don’t need the phone.
Yes, but if you break down or have an accident, you can call.
It’s just to the shops. It’s only ten minutes’ drive.

I got some potatoes, but I couldn’t remember what else we needed.
