I was reading a novel and encountered this sentence "I have my good days."
And I guess I can't interpret it literally, can I? Because it doesn't make sense.
A : It is sweet, though.
B : I have my good days.
The conversation was kind of like this. I feel like it is some sort of idiom. I can't figure it out.
I don't think the novel's and author's name will help... it is not a published book anyway.
The situation is like this :
Bob proposed to Carol. Bob asked family and friend for permission before popping the question. Carol accepted and told her family and friends that they are going to marry. But they already knew. Now Carol comes back, and asks Bob "You did it for approval?" And he replies "Yes", so she says "It is sweet, though." Then Bob says "I have my good days."
Thank you again.
