"I need a napkin to blow my nose into."
"Oh, you need a napkin to blow your nose into?"
"Why? Why do you do that? Darien? DARIEN? Why do you DO that? Why do you REPEAT THE THING I SAY IN QUESTION FORMAT? DARIEN?"

And then I look like the jerk. It is something I've yelled about for two years. I can't help it. It immediately enrages me, turning me back into a toddler. A better person would let it go, but I REFUSE to answer the question I had answered with the original sentence, so the alternative is to STARE at him until something else is said and believe me, believe me, the staring is worse.
