  • Yum. It tastes good.

  • Tastes good, you say? Just good ?

  • Well - it's not bad.

  • Not bad?! Honestly Feifei, there is no pleasing

  • you sometimes. Is there something missing?

  • Rob - it's awesomesauce!

  • You want sauce on it? Why didn't

  • you say? What do you want - strawberry,

  • chocolate, caramel?

  • No, I was actually being nice.

  • It was a compliment, Rob!

  • Listen to these other examples
