She just doesn’t get me.
Sometimes my wife teases me for being predictable. When she does, I explain that it must mean that I’m really smart because when you’re really smart, you’re predictable because you invariably choose the best option in any given situation.
She likens my predictability to that of a baboon rather than a savant. That might make her sound mean but the truth is she’s soft-hearted when it comes to dumb animals.
My wife’s teasing aside, I do maintain that if you want to outfox a smart person all you need to do is anticipate them making the best choice. This assumes, of course, that they’re not aware that you’re after them.
