Divergent - Veronica Roth

Excuse me, Beatrice, but did a light just switch on, that you suddenly notice this? Because I'm pretty sure the light-level in the room has been the same since you walked in, and you haven't seen her in any other light, so why did you just now notce the grey? Why tell me about it now, and why bother to mention the light, which obviously hasn't changed and doesn't matter?
