    To me the theme of the song is not a break or a lack of communication between two people, and neither Dylan’s state of confusion or detachment.
    I see it as a sarcastic and cynical song of Dylan trying to shake off a nagging spouse, who keeps on bothering him with all kind of stupid requests.
