Me: ‘ That’s so cool.’
She: ‘Not so much. I just told him on the phone, he says he doesn’t like paneer.’
Me : ‘So?’
She: ‘It’s a waste that I learnt to cook it, his mom likes round rotis she said.’

Me: ‘Oh! What is his profession again?’
She:’ Software Engineer. Same as mine, just different companies.’
Me: ‘Does he cook?’
She: ‘He has never entered kitchen apparently. His mom says.’
