      Hi Ami,

      Thank you for posting some questions and vocabulary words.
      Your second comprehension question and discussion question are very nice because it connects to the main topic of this article.
      However, you have the same vocabulary as Ayaka: “aggravate.” Do you have any vocabulary words? If you have, can you post it? 🙂

      Thank you,
      Rina 🙂
