Fidel has been a vegetarian for over sixteen years. Susan stopped eating shellfish in middle school. Recently, Fidel has been talking about eating meat again. At yesterday’s family get-together, people were encouraging him to try the kalbi (marinated Korean short-ribs).
Susan’s Living Room
FIDEL: I’ll eat some kalbi if you eat a shrimp.
SUSAN: No way!
CAROL: (hearing the exchange, spins around) Wait, WHAT?!
SUSAN: I’ll eat the shrimp if you have more than just a nibble of the kalbi.
FIDEL: Alright, let’s do it.
(Both respectively eat their designated piece of meat as the crowd cheers them on.)
FIDEL: It’s good, but more chewy than I remember.
SUSAN: The shrimp still tastes gross.
Fidel will continue his rediscovery of meat. Susan won’t be eating shellfish anytime soon.
