Repeat A: James, eat your candy after dinner, please. B: I just want to eat a little now. A: You'll spoil your dinner! B: My food won't rot if I eat a little candy. A: What do you mean? B: When food spoils, it goes bad. My food won't go bad. A: It won't rot, but it won't taste the same, either. B: Why won't it taste the same? A: Well, if you eat the candy now, it will stay in your mouth. B: I guess so. Why is that bad? A: I don't think you want blueberry-flavored mashed potatoes! B: You're right, I don't! I'll eat the candy later.
