Man: What is that smell?
Woman: It’s this fruit. It’s called durian.
Man: Oh, that stinks! It’s like a bag of wet garbage, you know, that’s been left in the heat in the sun! Why are you eating it?
Woman: Well, it tastes better than it smells. D’you wanna try it?
Man: No, no, no thanks. The smell makes me wanna throw up.
Woman: Well, you know, It is a delicacy in most Asian countries. They actually call it the “king of fruits.”
Man: No they don’t! You’re making that up!
Woman: I’m not. It’s true!
Man: Alright. What does it taste like, then?
Woman: I dunno, it’s a little bit hard to describe. It has a creamy texture and it’s kinda strange really; it’s not sweet, it’s not bitter… Just try it!
Man: No way, eugh! I just don’t know why people eat this stuff. You know, like, blue cheese—why eat something that smells so bad, you know what I mean?
Woman: I actually love blue cheese. You know, I think you should branch out a little bit more, try new things.
Man: New things … dunno. I’m not an adventurous eater, you know? I know what I like and I eat that.
Woman: Well, it takes some time to get into it, I agree. I didn’t like it the first time I tried it, but after a while, I got into it.
Man: Food should be nice, not work. Sounds like making an effort just for the sake of it. There’s loads of perfectly nice cheese which doesn’t stink like old socks.
Woman: Fine, be boring, then. This means there’s simply more delicious durian for me!
Man: Wahey for you! If there’s any left, by the way, just wrap it up well. I don’t wanna smell that again…
