Mary, Mary quite contrary

It's nursery rhyme time! More details later...

Mary, Mary quite contrary,
How does your garden grow?
With silver bells and cockle shells
And pretty maids all in a row.

Are do you mean? Are you getting a maid?
or maybe some silver bells?
could be a trip to the beach to pick up some shells?
What is it?

I thought it better to use that nursery rhyme to describe someone. It's mostly the first line that's relevant, "Mary Mary quite contrary" refers to "a person who contradicts out of habit or attitude rather than any real objections to the ideas being expressed". Like the person I referred to in my next post.

passive-aggressive? I think I know who this person is who vexes you, a most undeserving old woman. Very ill indeed!

Ill, I say!!! Truly you are correct, undeserving.
