JASON： It's 6：00. Let's go get something to eat. MIMI： Alright. JASON： What would you like？
MIMI： I don't really care. Whatever you want. JASON： Well， what do you feel like？
MIMI： It doesn't matter. I'm sick of the food here. So it doesn't really matter. JASON： Why do you always complain about the food here？
MIMI： Are you kidding？ American food is lousy. JASON： It isn't lousy. There is a lot of variety. You are just prejudiced. MIMI： I'm not prejudiced. It's lousy. It's all beef and potatoes and pizza. And sandwiches and beef and burritoes. And burritoes and beef and potatoes and fried chicken. I'm sick of it！
JASON： You know， I have three Taiwanese friends in town. And they all complain about the food. It's really strange. And we even have a Chinese restaurant here. MIMI： That isn't real Chinese food. It's American Chinese food. It's lousy. JASON： Well， what about American restaurants in Taiwan？ Are they real American food？
MIMI： Yes， they are. They are exactly the same as they are here. But the Chinese restaurants here aren't as good as in Taiwan. So， you see？ It's not fair. JASON： You Taiwanese are always complaining about food. You whine too much. MIMI： It's because the food in Taiwan is so good. We miss it. We even dream about it at night. JASON： Hmm. But in this town we have all kinds of ethnic restaurants. We have Greek restaurants， Italian restaurants，Mexican restaurants， and Japanese restaurants. So you should be able to find something you like. MIMI： No， it's impossible. But if you want to have dinner，why don't we go to the Japanese restaurant？ I feel like some good noodle soup. JASON： Alright， that sounds good to me. I'm flexible. I'm not a big baby. MIMI： Listen， Jason. Until you have the food in Taiwan， you will never understand. It is really very very good. JASON： I'll go there. Next year， maybe. And maybe I'll miss American food. MIMI： You won't. Believe me. You won't.
