normally, we say "it's getting late" to say that time is passing and especially that evening or late evening is coming
For example, It's getting late so we should probably go home.
My question is:
Can we say "it's getting late" when we are late to do something and not referring to the end of the day.
For example, you're supposed to cook lunch at 10 am but now is 11: am already. Then, can we say "it's getting late to cook lunch"?
