think about (someone or something)

think about (someone or something)

1. To reflect on or ruminate over someone or something. I kept thinking about that movie's ending for days afterward. Seeing the flyer for Macbeth in the subway station made me think about my old drama teacher in high school. Did you hear about what happened to poor Tom and his family? It makes me sick just thinking about it!
2. To consider possibly doing something. I thought about going into medicine, but I was more interested in studying law. A: "Do you want to come with me to the movies tonight?" B: "I'll think about it."
