Alice: Sure, that's one approach. But I prefer to exhale deeply and roll my eyes while you prattle.

The carnage will create a striking contrast for the warm, clear glow of my brilliant ideas. Later, I will round out the package by spreading amusing stories about how ignorant you are. Is there any chance of doing it my way? Alice: Now watch the eyes."
