I'm writing an English oral script for a test. In my script, there are three roommates in a dormitory.

A asks them: 'Guys, did you got any plan for this holiday?'

B replied: 'Not really, any idea? I'm cool in anyway.'

I want to express that 'B' feel good about whatever 'A' suggested; how should I express it like English native speakers? Don't pay attention to grammar; just do people use this expression in spoken English?

    no, I have never heard anyone say, “I’m cool in”. “I’m cool with whatever.” would be much more idiomatic. Also, not “did you got” just “got any plans...” also not “this holiday” “the holiday” – Jim Apr 25 '19 at 14:44
  • What regional dialect are you thinking of? Spoken colloquial language is very dependent on regionality: what's perfectly normal in Jamaica might be meaningless in Boston; what's said in Glasgow might not be understood in, well, anywhere. Where I'm from (Australia), we might say "Guys, wotch y'up to for the holidays?" "Dunno; any ideas? I'm easy." – Chappo Hasn't Forgotten Monica Apr 26 '19 at 2:58
  • Just a point: in your explanation 'B' is a single third person so I want to express that 'B' feel good should read I want to express that 'B' feels good. – BoldBen Apr 26 '19 at 11:43

Brit here, so my UK take would be:

A: "Guys, have you got any plans for the holidays?"

B: "Not really. Any ideas? I'm cool with anything."

  • That would sound normal in Canadian English as well (which tends to be close to US). – Mike Apr 25 '19 at 18:26
