Give me a second/Give me a sec/Hold on a second/Just a second/Just a sec
Please give me a second. I need to grab my jacket.
Hold on a second. Let me catch my breath.
A: Wake up, sleepy head! It's time to get up.
B: Ah! Already? I'm just going to snooze for a few more minutes.
A: No, you're not. It's already past seven o'clock and you need to prepare your school lunch.
B: I still have some of my allowance left over. I'll buy my lunch today.
A: Come on, Polly. Don't argue with me. You're not going to waste your allowance on lunch when you have a refrigerator full of food.
B: Oh, okay. I need to brush my teeth first. Give me a second.
A: Good girl, Polly.
B: Dad, do you want me to prepare your lunch too? I can make you a salad with tuna.
A: No, thanks. Darling.
B: Why not?
A: I'm going to buy my lunch today.
