That was indicative of what he was saying is opposite of his thought at that moment .

"Indicative" Ara kinda clumsy, not at all collo

That suggests what he was saying at that moment is opposite what he was thinking

Ara I do that too, like


hendiadys

PRONUNCIATION:
(hen-DY-uh-dis)

MEANING:
noun: A figure of speech in which two words joined by a conjunction are used to convey a single idea instead of using a word and its modifier.
Example: "pleasant and warm" instead of "pleasantly warm"


I remember by imagining "hen do the dishes." She has left her nest for the kitchen whereupon whereupon her eggs are no longer pleasantly warm
