The next suitable person youâ€™re in light conversation with, you stop suddenly in the middle of the conversation and look at the person closely and say, â€œWhatâ€™s wrong?â€ You say it in a concerned way. Heâ€™ll say, â€œWhat do you mean?â€ You say, â€œSomethingâ€™s wrong. I can tell. What is it?â€ And heâ€™ll look stunned and say, â€œHow did you know?â€ He doesnâ€™t realize somethingâ€™s always wrong, with everybody.
