A recent conversation with Mama.
Marinka: Mama, thank you so much for bringing that pasta dish over. It was delicious.
Mama: Did you like it?
Marinka: I loved it. So tasty. I’ve been having it for lunch every day.
Mama: I’m glad, because usually you have junk food and this is wholesome ingredients.
Marinka: …Yes, thank you…
Mama: I made a great effort to make it, I’m glad you appreciate it and didn’t just throw it out.
Mama: It’s the perfect pasta dish, you agree?
Marinka: Yes, except I don’t love.. red pepper..
Mama: What’s wrong with red pepper?
Marinka: I just don’t love the taste, but the rest was great.
Mama: What not love taste? Red pepper is delicious. Stop that nonsense.
Marinka: It’s not my favorite.
Mama: You always ate red pepper, now you’re too good for red pepper?
Marinka: I’m sorry, I made a mistake. I love red pepper.
Mama: Good, I’ll make more.
