Cheryl: I think everything’s ready. Why don’t we sit down?
Marie: This smells so wonderful! What are we having to eat?
Cheryl: There’s roast chicken, baked potatoes, salad, broccoli with garlic, red cabbage, and rice. Help yourself, everyone.
Paul: Wow! That’s a lot of vegetables.
Cheryl: Vegetables are very healthy for you. Mr. Evans, would you like some chicken?
Mr. Evans: Just a little, thank you. I’m not a big chicken eater.
Cheryl: How about some potatoes?
Mr. Evans: I’m sorry. I’m avoiding potatoes.
Cheryl: Some broccoli?
Mr. Evans: I’ll pass. I’m afraid it doesn’t agree with me.
Mr. Evans: Sorry. I’m allergic.
Cheryl: Mr. Evans, I’m so sorry. There’s very little here for you to eat.
Mr. Evans: I’m crazy about rice.
Cheryl: Well, then pass the rice please.
Marie: Cheryl, this tastes so delicious. Bob, you’re not eating very much tonight. Don’t you like the food?
Cheryl: Bob’s on a diet.
Bob: I’m trying to lose weight.
Mr. Evans: Good for you, Bob.
Paul: I’m on a diet, too.
Marie: Why are you on a diet? You’re so skinny.
Paul: I’m trying to gain weight.
Bob: I can’t stand it.
