You think I don’t get it.
I get it.
You’ve got my data. I couldn’t hide my hard copy of the data from you.
I’m regretting sending you a soft copy, but you shrewdly didn’t leave me any room to maneuver when you asked.
You picked my mind, got my insight on the topic.
You checked when, if, I plan to publish. You satisfied yourself that its a long way away. I simply don’t have the time now.
You carefully framed the next step : I’ll see you next term. And in a totally different context.
You told me nothing about the state of your research, deliberately vague when I asked.
Did you think I wouldn’t notice?
I expected better from a HKU professor.
