I grabbed my car keys.



Here is an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Paper Towns by John Green, author of the award winning book ‘Looking for Alaska’.

‘ Margo grabbed hold of my shirt, whispered “Back in a minute” in my ear and then climbed out the window.

As soon as she left, I grabbed my car keys from my desk. The keys are mine; the car, tragically, is not.’

In both instances, the verb grab means to take something with your hands suddenly and roughly.


Grab a drink with an old friend some time soon….one of life’s best moments!
