    They lived happily ever after. (the way all fairy stories end!)

    In conversation
    'Joe, go and clean your room!'
    'But I want to play on the computer'
    'You can do that after'

    You can do this when "after" is used as part of a verb.
    For example:
    It's exhausting to look after babies. ---> Babies are exhausting to look after.
