TO MISS-4 (REVISION)
TO MISS-4 (REVISION): meaning and examples
Today is the fourth day we are looking at different meanings and uses of the verb to miss. Today's meaning of miss is:
-to escape or avoid something that is unpleasant or uncomfortable
I drive for more than an hour every morning to get to work. I leave at 5:00 AM in order to miss a lot of traffic.
In example 1, the speaker leaves early so there won't be as much traffic. She misses the heavy traffic.
I narrowly missed being given a prison sentence for a crime I didn't commit.
In this example, the speaker avoids going to prison (with the help of a good lawyer?).
