"He's no longer my friend, boon or otherwise" means nothing to me.Hi, it's me again :)!
What does it mean 'a boon or otherwise'. I know what 'boon' and 'or otherwise' means but not sure if added up it also doesn't change its meaning. I've searched the Net and known dictionaries (the paper one in my house, and the online ones, too) but couldn't find any definitions but Google told me that it's used (not sure if it's common though, I think not).
The context is... well, I'm not actually sure when I heard the phrase but I think it was something like 'he's no longer my friend, boon or otherwise'. It wasn't a sentence used by a dumped girl, rather by a friend who was disappointed with the other friend's behaviour... I could be wrong but I think that the sentence was pretty much similiar :)
Thanks guys in advance because I'm sure that you'll help me out :)
