  • To sleep on it. To sleep on it means that you need a night to make a decision about

  • something. For example: You may have been offered a job or you may have been offered

  • an invitation to a party and you are not sure if you want to go or not; you may need one

  • night to decide. So when somebody says, "Can I sleep on it?" they mean, can I have one

  • evening to make my decision and I'll tell you tomorrow morning.

  • For example: Do you want to come to the party? Umm... I'm not sure, can I sleep on it and

  • I'll get back to you tomorrow?

  • So, if you'd like to use this expression, sleep on it and think about a way that you

  • can.
