My friends had come over to my place some days back and we were watching a movie on tv. So this one friend switched on the subtitles and the funny thing was that even though I dont use subtitles when I watch a movie normally, I was reading it then. And I was reading the whole thing (and I read pretty fast, thanks to my reading hobby) then watching what was happening. And it was annoying because I knew what the person was gonna say even before he/she actually said it.

I have always wanted to have the ability to read other people's minds from as long as I can remember. I guess everyone wants a special superpower for themselves and this is what I wanted and sometimes still want. But after that incident, I have kind of been thinking otherwise. If my wish ever came true, it would be the same as watching a movie with subtitles on and I would actually know what the other person is going to say or how he/she is going to react before they did it. Now that wouldnt be very entertaining, would it?
