I can see why you don't like that one. After all, you still haven't come around to I'm So sick Of You. (Or have you?)
No, not yet. I just can't seem to get past thinking of it like this:
1. Men do sometimes say insulting things to, and about, women they've lost interest in.
2. I just can't imagine Al doing so. If he found himself thinking something along those lines at any time during all those single years, I feel confident that he managed to keep it tucked behind his teeth until the impulse passed. He seems able to treat people with respect even under provocation.
3. Nevertheless, I can't see any real difference between "I'm So Sick of You" and the phenomenon in #1 except that Al came up with a much more creative array of insults. If there's some comic twist or altered viewpoint, some new light cast on the phenomenon, some turning the whole thing inside out or upside down, I'm missing it.
