I Scream Anybody?

 She said: “Would you like some ice cream?”

He said:  “I guess.”

She said: “Well, if you don’t know, I’m not wasting it on you.”

He gave her that look, then said:  “I wouldn’t mind some ice cream.”

She said:  “Well, of course you wouldn’t.  That’s silly.  What kind of an order might ice cream give that anybody would feel compelled to obey?”

Again he gave her that look.   He took a deep breath, sighed, then spoke very carefully:  “I would like some ice cream.  Half of what you gave me last night, please.”

She queried:  “Half of what I gave you last night?”

He replied.  “Yes, please.  Half.”

Exasperated, she said, “I can’t do that!”

He demanded:  “Why not?”

She said, “Well, how am I to get it?   It isn’t as though you’ve just eaten it.  It’s sure to be digested.”

He made a  growly noise:  “May I please just have a small serving of ice cream?”

She said:  “Yes, dear.  All you had to do is ask.”
