Can "make a face" mean to just "come and show up"?
"They'll come here any minute. but don't worry about it.
They'll come in, *make a face*, say something snotty and we'll study, and they'll leave."
I looked it up in the dictionary and it says it means "to show a funny or distorted expression to someone in ridicule." and other meanings also seem to have slightly negative connotation to it.
But I was wondering if "make a face" could mean just someone "come/go to some place and made an appearance, showed up etc." Can it be interpreted that way?
