Killing Time- 暇つぶし

If someone says that they are “killing time”, it might sound strange at first, but it just means that they are wasting time. Often it means that they are doing unimportant activities while waiting to do something.

“What are you doing right now?”

“Oh, I’m killing time, playing video games for a few hours until the party starts.”


「用事までの暇つぶし中なの!」という軽い表現で、I’m just killing time. という表現をよく使います。
