🌠Jean: My brother and his family will be coming into town next week.
Joe: Is he the one who writes articles for the English Post ?
Jean: Right, why don't you come over next Sunday to meet him.
Joe: I'd love to but I can't. Can you give me a rain check !!!
Jean: Sure, they'll be here for a week. So just let me know when you can come.
Joe: Ok! I will be very interested in seeing him.
: If you say you will take a rain check
on an offer or suggestion, you mean that you do not want to accept it straight away, but you might accept it at another time.
So to take a rain check is to promise to accept the offer later, and to give a rain check is to promise to renew an offer later.🍹Examples
🚴♀ I was planning to ask you in for a coffee, but if you want to take a rain check
, that's fine!
🚴♀ I'm sorry but I'm busy on Saturday - can I take a rain
