First instinct


Senior Member

I am watching TV drama, and there is a line that I don't understand.

Woman1's mother died, and woman2 says " I'm sorry".
And then woman1 says "My first instinct was to call her to talk about it"

Does this mean that woman1 cannot believe her mother's death and she thought she would call her mother and talk about her death?

Thanks for your help.

    Yes, I agree, It obviously suggests that woman 1 often rang her mother to talk about news/problems so when she hear the dramatic news of her mother's death, her automatic reaction was to ring her mother (which she could clearly no longer do).
