Kiwi asks…

Why would he say "physically" in this context? Is it to emphasize the verb "go?"


Answer from a Native speaker

Rebecca

Yes, kind of! It's to emphasize that the person goes into the coffee shop itself. Opposed to getting someone else to get it, ordering it on an app, or making it themselves. Ex: I will literally go to sleep if it starts raining. => emphasize that it's true; similar usage to "physically" Ex: She physically went into the principal's office and yelled at him. It wasn't just an email.
