Omega has this way of drawing out information out of me, and it finally dawned on me how he does it. He doesn't questions that can be answered with a yes or a no, at least not often. He rarely asks simply, how was work; your day; it is tell me about your day or work. This can lead to simple answers like it was a normal day, boring, horrible, whatever but for the most part I find myself going through a mental inventory of the day. He will ask sometimes if he suspects something will be difficult for me, if I want to talk about it, but more often than not, it's tell me about this or that.
To me, the usage of the phrase tell me lies somewhere between a command and a leading question. He's ordering me to tell him in a very non-threatening way, and subtle way. I like it.
