I shrink to think

You have to imagine that you are talking to someone you know very well and also that you are speaking in a joking way. In that sense you are right because this expression is used informally and really suggests: I haven't the slightest idea and I want you to tell me. Take this exchange:

A Do you know what I did last night?

B I shrink to think what you did! Do tell me. I'd love to hear.
