Jon: Wait! What are you doing with that squishy tomato?
Marta: I’m tossing it. It’s no good anymore.
Jon: I’ll take it, and I’ll take that stale bread, too.
Marta: Stop! You can’t fish that out of the trash.
Jon: I’m trying to do my part to reduce food waste. Tired vegetables are still okay to eat, as are bruised fruit.
Marta: Fine, but not once they’ve been discarded. Stay out of my trash.
Jon: What are you going to do with this graying meat?
Marta: I was going to throw that out, too.
Jon: I’ll take it. I’m sure I can make something edible with it.
Marta: You can’t be serious. I’m all for doing my part, but I draw the line at eating spoiled meat.
Jon: It’s not spoiled. It’s just beyond the peak of freshness.
Marta: Well, be my guest. You can have all of this food.
Jon: And to show my thanks, I’ll invite you over to lunch tomorrow.
Marta: Thanks, but no thanks.
