Hello everyone .

what is the meaning of ''I'm ready for a lift'', ''Call it a day'' and ''Make it small''.

I'm ready for a lift' could be taken as
I am ready for you to take me in your car to the place we have pre-arranged
or it could mean
I am ready to hear some news which will make me happy.

'Call it a day' means give up doing something, at least for the time being.

'Make it small' has no other meaning as far as I know.
