“Are you going to Josie’s party?” asked Tracey.
Jen suddenly felt a little dizzy.
“No, I wasn’t invited.”
Tracey and Jen were best friends. They were both in the 5th grade and had known each other since they were 4 years old. In fact, they were hardly ever apart. They lived right next door to each other, were always in the same class at school and both took the same dance classes since they started.
“When is it?” wondered Jen.
“It is this Saturday afternoon,” replied Tracey. “From 2:00-5:00 at the roller skating rink.”
Tracey could see that Jen felt sad.
“You know, Jen, Josie is new at school. She doesn’t have a lot of friends yet. I just figured that she invited everyone.”
Jen’s face turned red and she got a little angry.
“Well, she didn’t invite me. And besides, this Saturday you and I were going to do that 5-mile bike race. Remember?”
Tracey put her hands on her mouth in surprise.
“Oh gosh, I totally forgot! Now I don’t know what to do! I already told Josie I would go to her party, but I promised you we would go bike riding. Oh no! I don’t know what to do!”
What would you do?
- Go to Josie’s party anyway.
- Tell Josie that you made a mistake and already had plans
- Tell Jen to ask Josie if she can go to her party
- Don’t go to the party or ride the bike so you don’t hurt anyone
