Hi.I wonder what this sentence means()
(Funny you should ask)
Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
Bob: Are you and Karen going to stay together?
Ted: Funny you should ask. I was just thinking about that.
puryaali, I have changed your original thread title.
Extract from the Posting Guidelines:
'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'
Tarheel's elegant response absolutely nails it. I would just add that "funny you should ask" is mainly AmE. I don't think it is much heard in BrE.
For learners "Funny you should ask" means "I was just thinking about that".
