How would you interpret the fourth sentence?
How would you interpret the fourth sentence “That’s a new one on me”?
PS: the excerpt is taken from “Missing Kissinger” written by an Israeli author, Etgar Keret. And I’m reading an English translation.
She says I don’t really love her. I say I do, I think I do, but I don’t. I’ve heard of people who say they don’t love somebody—but to decide for somebody else if they love them? That’s a new one on me. True, I had it coming. If you go to bed with a skunk you shouldn’t cry when your kids stink.
