본문에서 제가 Jason에게 “Oh I’m starving! 어휴, 나 배고파 죽겠어.” 라고 하자 Jason이 “I knew you would be hungry so I bought an extra hamburger for you. 너 배고파 할 줄 알고 햄버거 하나 더 시켜왔어. Here you go. 자, 받아.”라고 하네요. 그러자 제가 “You read my mind! Thanks so much! 어쩜, 그렇게 내 마음을 잘 아니? 고마워!”라고 하자 Jason이 “Yup, I totally read your mind didn’t I? 응! 척하면 삼천리지. 네 마음을 훤히 꿰뜷러 본 거야.”라고 하더라고요.
