Akim: Oh, this is so good! Why are your eyes watering?
Wendy: It’s so spicy! When you invited me over for curry, I didn’t know it’d be so hot.
Akim: This is mild or maybe medium. I make another version of this that’s much hotter. In fact, I like mine with some extra peppers and some hot sauce. Do you want any?
Wendy: Are you kidding me?! The roof of my mouth is on fire.
Akim: You must have very sensitive taste buds. This has a little kick to it and it’s pungent and zesty, but it’s not too spicy.
Wendy: You must have no taste buds at all if you think this is mild. My mouth needs to cool down from all that heat. I need more water – now!
Akim: All right, but you don’t want to fill up on water. I’ve made a special dessert.
Wendy: Is that supposed to be mild, too?
Akim: No, that really is spicy!
