This question already has an answer here:
- Phrase translation: 何を言い出すかと思えば 1 answer
I ran into this phrase more than once now.
I have found what 言い出す and かと思えば mean separately in dictionaries. I'm just not sure what they mean when put together. My first interpretation was "Tell me what you think."
But I don't know what would differentiate this phrase from just saying using 何 and 思う.
