    Cool eat up

    Hi,

    Instead of saying "Don't make me believe that", can I say "Don't make it eat it up" or "don't make me swallow that"?

    Re: eat up

    You can use 'swallow', but I would say something like 'I'm not going to swallow that' as the idea of forcing someone to believe something doesn't work for me.

    Re: eat up

    We also say, for example.

    A: I said the cat could dance.
    B: and he bought it?
    A: yes, he did. And... besides that, he bought the cat.
