鈥淲ith plenty of mayonnaise, huh? I adore it. 鈥?
The way she said this did actually mean that it was Homer who made her zealous and he beamed at her. But before he had to be able to sit down, she was already eating. She buttered a cut of bread, covered the butter with sugar and took a big bite. Then she quickly smeared a gob of mayonnaise on the trout and went to work. Just as he was about to sit down, she demanded something to drink. He poured.
鈥淵es, he must to go to a doctor, 鈥?Homer said.
She was standing up suddenly and buried both her hands in her hair at the sides of her head, making it bunch towards the top in a shiny ball.
Her odd mannerisms and artificial voice worried him. 鈥淲hat time is it? 鈥?she asked.
