    We are happy to help if we can, Ferdie, but we shouldn't have to hunt through websites to find your context.

    Re: Something is off

    By 'context' we generally mean enough information to enable us to see what the word means. In your case, providing the sentence or two immediately preceding 'Something is off' should work.

    Re: Something is off

    Ok, here it is:

    I stared at him, speculating. He didn't seem to notice. His face was serene as he gazed out the windshield. Something was off, but I coudn't put my finger on it.

    I hope this enables you to understand the context. Thanks.

    Something was not quite right. Something was not quite as it should be
