It wasn't that you said you were leaving. Why darling, if anything, that finally showed that you have some mettle. It certainly wasn't that you said were leaving for one of your students.
To tell you the truth, that shocking confession almost put me to sleep, darling. But rising to leave in the middle of dinner? Now that was just rude. Oh, don’t worry darling; I’m done with my little tantrum now. Just let me rinse off my knife and finish my dessert, and then I promise I'll ring you an ambulance. In the meantime, just sit there and be a good boy. Oh and do try not to drip blood on the good china.
