grab lunch

Stupid thing, really, but why when people want to make a get-together seem super casual — not a date! not even a plan to share a meal! — they speak of “grabbing?”

“Want to grab a drink some time?”

“We should grab lunch some time!”

Such an unconvincing offering, like a cold, limp handshake.
