     I'm on a diet to lose weight!

Hear the storyline. Martha is on a diet to lose weight, but her friend is trying to coax her into eating a bowl of ice-cream.  Can Martha stand the temptation?
Sydney: Would you like to have some ice-cream?  I've got a variety of flavors for you to choose from.  I've got strawberry, peach, chocolate, chocolate chip, chocolate brownie, coffee, vanilla, rocky road, butter pecan, and praline.
Martha: Wow!  What choices you have!  I wish I could, but I just can't.  I'm on a diet to lose weight.
Sydney: Come on, it's just a bite.  It doesn't really hurt to have just a bite.
Martha: I'd better not.  Please don't tempt me.  Please!
Sydney: Gee!  You are really strong-willed. 
Martha: You're darn right.  I'm not so easily coaxed into doing something that I think is wrong.
Sydney: Well, I'd better not tempt you.  Otherwise, if I give you a piece of cake, you might ask for a glass of milk.
