    I mentally cringed so hard, Im surprised I didnt sprain something.

    Hey, I said, my voice way too loud, if youre, uh, hungry or something, I can see whats in the kitchen. Running for your life and dragging a powerless demon all over the world probably works up an appetite,
    huh? As soon as the words were out of my mouth, I mentally cringed so hard, Im surprised I didnt sprain something.


    I mentally cringed so hard, Im surprised I didnt sprain something.??

    That is a figurative way of saying the moment he uttered that statement some kind of a wave, quite powerful, went over him and made him shrink back for a second. He must have been scared or something.
