He knows me.

Me: "Um. Why are you smelling my breath? Trying to gauge how many drinks I've had?"

Eli: "Yeah. Two."

Me: "Hey--nice work! And what were they, do you think?"

Eli: "Margaritas."

Me: "One of them."

Eli: "A margarita and a beer. You had the margarita first. The beer was a Miller Lite bottle."

Me: "Close, but no bananas."

Eli: "Miller Lite draft."

Me: "You know me too well."

Eli: "I've known you a long time."

Me: "Nearly half our lives."
