Norwegian term or phrase: og forresten kunne det være det samme med alt
This is from a kid's book. The kid is about to leave on a field trip. He misses his dad and his classmates are teasing him. His best friend (Sigmund) sticks up for him and he's grateful, but still homesick. The context is: "Han lot Sigmund hjelpe ham av med rygsekken. Den var utrolig tung. Sigmund var ikke pappa, og forresten kunne det være det samme med alt. De gikk inn i bussen, og han la merke til at Anne hadde tatt med seg gitaren sin. Det kom altså til å bli allsang. Og allsang betydde at man ble tvunget til å gjøre noe som man absolutt ikke hadde lyst til, men sånn var det jo med det meste."
