    *Not a teacher

    It's a conversation between different characters.
    RG: I love acting, if I am given a chance, I will win the Oscar for sure.
    MG: Same here, everyone loved me in school plays.
    Fat Girl(FG): I have always ended up playing cows in my school plays.
    MG: Oh, I am sorry!
    FG: No, don't be, everyone loved to see a realistic cow on stage.


    These are the changes I would do.

    Please check the following conversation:

    MG: My bf is very boring, no food for thought.
    FG: why?
    MG: He is not able to step into anyone else’s shoes.
    FG: but why you want to waste food over thought?

    It sounds like you're just trying to use idioms without the right context.

    The line "but why you want to waste food over thought?" doesn't make any sense.

    MG: My boyfriend is very boring. He never has anything interesting to say.
    FG: What do you mean?
    MG: He can never see anything from anyone else's point of view. It's all about him.
    FG: Why would you want to waste time on him?
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
