Tourist: So what different kinds of drinks do you have here? Clerk: There's a menu up there that you can look at, but basically, there are teas, coffees, juices, and sodas. Tourist: Wow, that's great! The coffee looks good, especially the hazelnut latte, but I think I should probably save that for another time. If I drink it now, I'll never sleep tonight. Clerk: Why not have some tea? That shouldn't keep you awake. Tourist: OK, I think I will. This one looks interesting, the passion fruit green tea. Clerk: Good choice, that's my favorite drink, actually. Tourist: Can I get some ice in that? Clerk: Of course you can. Do you want a lot of ice or just a little? Tourist: Just a little, I think. Clerk: And how much sugar would you like? Tourist: I don't understand. Clerk: Well, you can have the full amount, half sugar, a little sugar, or no sugar. Tourist: Um, half sugar, please.
