Go Super to Listen Go Super!

relax, take it easy, have fun and don’t worry about anything

2. Use - Learn how the slang is used.

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

In order to relax and have fun, you have to be free of worries. Of course you can’t just escape responsibilities altogether, but in order to stay sane everyone has to cut loose now and then.

When you cut loose you forget about your job and anything you have to do for a little while. People often like to cut loose with their friends after work, or by exercising.

The opposite of cutting loose is being tied down. If you’re tied down, you have things you have to do and pay attention to, so you can’t relax. When Jason finds Mason at his desk, he looks pretty tied down. He actually has rope holding him to the desk!

So Jason cuts the rope and they immediately open beers and start playing with a football. It feels good to cut loose! How do you like to cut loose?

Examples

1. Examples - Hear some example sentences.

Go Super to Listen Go Super!

“It’s been a long day at work. I can’t wait to cut loose with my friends.”

“You’ve been so stressed out lately. Why don’t we leave town this weekend and just cut loose?”

“I’m so passionate about what I do that sometimes it’s hard for me to just cut loose.”

“Why don’t you come over, we’ll make some nachos, play some video games, you know, cut loose.”
