Errand

Definition
errand noun [C]
a short journey either to take a message or to deliver or collect something:
I'll meet you at six, I've got some errands to do/run first.
(from Cambridge Advanced Learner's Dictionary)



Today I have learned a new word “Errand”. Thanks to Mighty Lok for telling me this. This word is very useful when we are stepping out and would like to come back to the conversation later.

今天学了一个新字,“Errand”。这是一个非常有用的字。当我们需要离开一下,不过将会回来继续交谈的时候,我们可以说“I will meet you later, I have got some errands to run first.”。谢谢家洛介绍了这么好用的生字给我。

Thanks to your good example. I really admire someone like you that have a good command in English. When can I be like you all? By the way, any new post lately?

Dear Frankie,
"I will meet you later, I have got some errands to run
first"- I learned this from your blog today,
Nice one! But I would like to drop a few lines here,
not til 6 o'clock, ;) Thanks for your 'jia you'!
Who is that 'Jia Luo' in your blog? I know a young man
with the same name who lives in PJ and am now in his
final year of undergraduates, is that the same person?
Have a great day!
