Martha is on a diet to lose weight, but her friend is trying to coax her into eating a bowl of ice-cream. Can Martha stand the temptation?
Sydney:Would you like to have some ice-cream? I've got a variety of flavors for you to choose from. I've got strawberry, peach, chocolate, chocolate chip, chocolate brownie, coffee, vanilla, rocky road, butter pecan, and praline.
Martha: Wow! What choices you have! I wish I could, but I just can't. I'm on a diet to lose weight.
Sydney: Come on, it's just a bite. It doesn't really hurt to have just a bite.
Martha: I'd better not. Please don't tempt me. Please!
Sydney: Gee! You are really strong-willed.
Martha: You're darn right. I'm not so easily coaxed into doing something that I think is wrong.
Sydney: Well, I'd better not tempt you. Otherwise, if I give you a piece of cake, you might ask for a glass of milk.
