Dissing Rumi

One of my roommates approached me while I was in bed reading last night. She knocked on the door and asked whether she could open it, as if I'd be worshipping Ba'al or flashing out the window, and opened it without a flourish. She said the following: "I don't know -------- (our other roommate) that well, but it's just a good idea not to leave money lying around the house." This is my bus fare, which I keep near the door every day. The point is that by standing in my doorway, she was also standing right outside his door. I asked if he was in. "Yes," she said, "he's in there watching television."
