One fine morning at breakfast burrito bar:
Me: Hi! Breakfast veggie burrito please. No tomato - I'm allergic.
Him: WHAT? Tomato is so good for you!
Me: Yes, unless it's toxic to your system.
Him: Well, we can put a little in, just for flavor.
Me: No - but thank you!
Him: Oooooh. Ok. Well, how about sun dried tomato?
Me: Thank you! But, that won't work.
Him: But it's sooooo delicious! I just can't imagine what it would be like!
Me: It's hard. Sometimes very hard.
Him: A little pico de gallo on the side?
Me: that's chopped up tomato, so no.
Him: Wow. You know, I just don't get it.
