Sometimes when I feel awkward in a conversation and I’m not sure what to say, I just go “yeah, I feel ya” whether it makes sense in context or not. I was ordering food today, and the cashier asked for my name, then she said, “Oh, I’ve got a sister named Elodie.”
“Oh yeah?” I said.
“Yeah. One of many. Got a lot of sisters.”
And I wasn’t sure what to say to that, so what came out was “I feel ya,” even though I don’t have a lot of sisters. I don’t even have one sister. But for the purposes of that conversation, I had many sisters, and the cashier had many sisters, and we were bonded as one.
