Sean: the professor is a bit boring today. You need something to perk yourself up. How about a coffee?
J: I don't really like coffee, to be honest. It's too bitter for me.

S: the diet sodas don't have any caffeice in it?
J: I like diet sprite. Does that have any caffeine in it?
S: unfortunately, it doesn't. how about some diet coke?
J: I don't care for coke. I heard that coke was first used as a medicine and I don't like medicine. What else has caffeine?
S: maybe you should try a cappuccino or a latte; they taste much better than plain brewed coffee.
J: maybe. How about a mochaccino? Are they any good?
S: you'll love that. It's just a shot of espresso beans mixed with steam milk and some chocolate syrup.
J: that's perfect! Would you like one, too? My treat.
S: thanks, but I'll stick with some jasmine tea. I'm trying to watch my diet.
