Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
Our lesson earlier in science was interesting, wasn’t it?
I don’t like bugs but knowing facts about them is fun.
That’s true. I didn’t even know that butterflies taste with their feet.
Me, neither. I like the fact that fireflies sometimes flash in unison
when in large groups.
It must be a sight to behold. I wish I can get the chance to witness it someday.
Same here, I’d love to see it.
But do you know my least favorite fact about insects?
No, what is it?
That caterpillars have 12 eyes!
I detest worm-like insects and I’ll never like them!
It is creepy, so it’s understandable if you hate it.
