"If You Want Me To Eat..."

Yesterday I posted something here that upon re-reading sounds very brusque. It's a phrase that sounds funny to me, picturing a guy so mean to his wife that he could say, "You know where I am! If you want me to eat you'll bring it to me!" Just typing it again makes me laugh out loud. What a crumb!

I have a recording of it hooked on to the previous post -- and I guess I'll hook it on to this one, too, because it sounds funny.

It's absurd, though, because the natural response to the guy would be, "Eat if you want, don't eat if you don't. What's it to me? Are you so deluded that you think I am fulfilling my desires by fulfilling yours? If you're that mean, starve!"
