She always does it to me... always! If anything ever has got anything to do with me, she would know it.
- Every time I would point to an actor, "Ah, that guy, what's his name?? The one who played the classmate of the hero in that thriller... what was that movie?" She would invariably tell me the name of the actor I am thinking about and the movie; and then rather matter-of-factly add, "Kayla (bengali for Dumb), this is not him!"
- Or, at the dinner table in a restaurant when I have apparently burried myself in the menu, she goes "Suvomoy, stop scanning what everyone else is having."
- Or, on a Sunday when she is in the kitchen trying something new, and I take a bottle of beer out from the fridge, walk upto her and complain, "There's only four bottles left, we'll have to get more for the evening." And she would politely go, "Amount of salt and other spices are all adequate and as discussed. So stop bothering and go back to whatever you were doing." :O
- Or, when I am spellbound in appreciation of the mannerism of Mr. Melvin Udall telling the manager, "I am not a prick; you are, not judging". She would warn me, "This time, please wait for an opportune moment before you use it on someone."
The list is never ending; and so is the realization, even after seven years of knowing her:
If there is one thing in this world that I can't do without, its her.
