Hello,

In the following context, could you please paraphrase the bold part?

‘You’re still carrying on as if it only just happened. You don’t even leave the house; I heard that you don’t even get your own groceries.’ This accusation is flung at me with casual disgust, as if this due to sheer laziness; a character flaw.

    "This accusation" refers to the previous two sentences. The speaker "throws" those words at the narrator in a manner that shows casual disgust.

    "Disgust" is self-explanatory. "With casual disgust" = disgusted, but in a casual way.

    I suppose it means they don't say this in a vehement, heated way.
