Mensagem:  His comment makes me think that something bad is going to happen.

For example:
The neighbors mentioned their son is having a party Saturday night.  (I predict lots of noise, trouble with the police, parking problems, etc.)
The teacher said we may have a surprise exam tomorrow.  (I haven't studied and I will do poorly if she gives us an exam now.)
For six months we have paid the same price for gasoline, but today the price rose by 10%.  (If gasoline is suddenly costing us 10% more, we can be sure that other items will also rise in price.)
