Kill time ...
✔️Very common idiom used in casual speaking
✔️You can use “kill time” to say you’re going to spend time doing something while you’re waiting to do something else.
Let’s pretend my mom can only give me a ride to the place where I’m going to interview at 2 pm, however, my interview doesn’t start until 4:00 pm. This means I have 2 hours to wait.
In this situation, I can say ...
•I’m going to kill time reading my book at the cafe across the street before my interview.
•While waiting for the bus every morning, my brother kills time by playing video games on his phone.
