Let’s read the dialogue. I will play Ron and you will play Emma. Then, we’ll switch roles.
PART B_2

Hey, Emma!
What’s up? Why did you call at this hour?

I’m sorry to bother you. I would just like to invite you to our family dinner tomorrow. Are you available?
Yeah, that would be awesome. By the way, I’d like to ask what will we have for dinner.

I think mom will prepare garlic buttered shrimp and roast chicken.
That’s awesome! However, I’m allergic to shrimp. And to be honest, I find chicken a little bland.

Really? That’s sounds awful. I don’t want you to cross the line and it might turn out bad. That will be a nail in the coffin.
Thanks for understanding. I wish I were immune to any food.

No worries. You are too special and my parents really want to see you. So, I’ll ask her to cook another dish for tomorrow.
Thank you so much, Ron.
