act of pulling a chair
over to a table
of some sort, and sitting down in said chair at said table. In yet another stunning display
, the English language
has once again misrepresented something: to pull something up implies that 1. you are above that thing, and 2. that it moves in an upward direction. When you "pull up a chair", niether of these conditions are met.
This is also a phrase that carries pretty much the same meaning as "come join us", used often by a group inviting someone they know to join in the food
, or whatever. Variations include "pull up a patch of carpet
" or "pull up a piece
" when the group is chairless.
