I think we get quick glimpses into the speaker's ruminating thoughts, which are rather precocious and playful with a little revenge. Consider the line when the speaker is trying on shoes with a color that she does not even like,  

Very politely, The grey pumps please."

"The Almafi in green."

(I hate green.)
