1,165 - Eating Spicy Foods

December 18th, 2015

Episode 334 of 489 episodes

Want to go to eat and feel hot, hot, hot? You can spice up your life by listening to this episode. Slow dialog: 1:25 Explanations: 3:14 Fast dialog: 15:45 Akim: Oh, this is so good! Why are your eyes watering? Wendy: It’s so spicy! When you invited me over for curry, I didn’t know it’d be so hot. Akim: This is mild or maybe medium. I make another version of this that’s much hotter. In fact, I like mine with some extra peppers and some hot sauce. Do you want any? Wendy: Are you kidding me?! The roof of my mouth is on fire. Akim: You must have very sensitive taste buds. This has a little kick to it and it’s pungent and zesty, but it’s not too spicy. Wendy: You must have no taste buds at all if you think this is mild. My mouth needs to cool down from all that heat. I need more water – now! Akim: All right, but you don’t want to fill up on water. I’ve made a special dessert. Wendy: Is that supposed to be mild, too? Akim: No, that really is spicy! Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
