So don't I, so aren't I, etc.

I note that ".... So. Don't/aren't I?" (as punctuated here) is considerably
different in stress, and consequently in meaning from "so don't/aren't I".

Just changing the stress and punctuation is sufficient to make something
unremarkable into something astonishingly non-standard.
