Wait a while. Okay. How long is a while!
Just so you know, when you go to Dictionary.com and type in a while, this is what you get:
Does that mean they looked and gave up? hmmmm
Just so we are all on the same page, it’s actually while. Which is a noun. Remember that? Person, place or thing thing?
Oh, and awhile means something totally different. You knew that, though!
Now I’M confused.
