  • Kick the Can was the name of a Children's game that became popular in the 19 thirties.

  • Kicked the can down the road.

  • Have you found a new apartment yet?

  • No.

  • I've just been paying rent on my same old place one month at a time.

  • You do know you have to get away from that roommate of yours, right?

  • You're just kicking the can down the road on Jonathan.

  • I know.

  • But right now, looking for a new apartment is more stressful than she is.

  • To kick the can down the road means to avoid dealing with a difficult situation or making ah hard decision until later.

  • For example, Ana does not want to begin looking for a new apartment, so she just kicks the can down the road every month.

  • And that's English in a minute.
