Turning info boxes on and off

Below is the code from my .py file.

I would like to program info boxes to appear and disappear based on user input or a timer, not from clicking on the logo to shrink the box. For example, a box with 3 choices appears to collect the user's choice of phrase. It disappears after the user clicks OK. Then an info box appears to tell the user the avatar's reply. After 2 seconds (enough time to read the reply), that info box disappears. Then another box with 3 choices appears to collect the user's next choice of phrase, and so on. I'm having a problem with the timing.

After running the file, if you press '5' an info box will appear. Once you click the OK button, the first info box will disappear, but a second info box does not appear as it should. Line 74 should make this box appear; line 77 should wait 2 seconds; and line 78 should make this box disappear.

Any advice is greatly appreciated!

male.state(1)				#Start in neutral state animation
