Hey.Larry.what are you doing?Are you busy?
Not really. I was just putting around the apartment, cleaning up a little and putting some things away. Why? What do you have in mind?
To put around is to behave idly, without anything very urgent or important to do. I don't have anything special to do, so I'm just putting around doing minor things.
I want to put around the zoo and look at the panda. Why not go with me?
Sure. I like panda,it`s so cute.
OK. I'll meet you at the university gate in half an hour.
