"You have to eat everything on your plate before you can watch television", mom admonished while I played with the slimy greens left on my plate.
"But moooommmm, you know I don't like spinach!" I replied.
"It is not spinach. That is a mess o'turnip greens cooked with white navy beans and a perfectly good piece of fatback", - "you have to eat every last bit of it before you can leave the table!"
"Aw, mom...can't you just give me a break? I ate the beans...I can't eat the spinach!"
"I already told you it is NOT spinach, now eat it ALL!"
"I say it's spinach, and I say to hell with it"
"Young man! What. Did. You. Just Say?"
"Aw, mom...if E. B. White could say it so can I"
