Definition
reach the highest or most decisive or final stage
  • Getting Harold's engine running after so long took all of the four hundred dollars I'd saved over the course of my life—allowances, change ferreted away when Mom sent me down the street to buy something at the Circle K, summer work at Subway, Christmas gifts from my grandparents—so, in a way, Harold was the culmination of my whole being, at least financially speaking.
