well, that should tide me over for the next day and a half*

"[name] joined Weight Watchers Online."
"Yes, although I just got a text message saying, 'Man, I didn't realize a Qdoba chicken burrito was 27 points!'"
"I only get 19 points for an entire day."

* I realize what a weird phrase "tide me over" is as I type it. It is "tide", right? Not "tied" or "tyde"?

My favorite meal at Arby's (not that I go more than once or twice a year) is a Beef and Cheddar and Curly Fries, with a horsey sauce/Arby's sauce combination to dip the fries in. That meal would cost me my entire day in points: 21.

Yes, I used to love the Arby's Beef and Cheddar with Curly Fries as well. (God, not that this is an especially compelling example, but I used to have such an unhealthy diet.)

"Tide [me] over" is correct. You endure or surmount your obstacle, as though riding the surge of a tide.

There have been more than a few times when I've tied one on to tide me over.
