“Dear Aunt Edith,
For my birthday in May, I’m taking three of my friends to Six Flags. My best friend doesn’t like roller coasters, though. I asked her if she preferred not to go, but she looked kind of hurt. I want to bring her, but I don’t want her to not have fun.
Ooh, you’re in a tough spot. I’d say if your friend really wants to go, let her go. So maybe she doesn’t like roller coasters. But maybe she just wants to be with you.
If she does want to go, maybe you can spread your time out. Go on a roller coaster, them go on something else, or do one of those side attraction things. But don’t go out of your way to make sure she’s happy – this is your party.
Don’t persuade her not to come, because she might feel like you think she’s a party pooper… uh, you might wanna change your screen name…
Enjoy Six Flags!
P.S. I’d love to hear from all my readers! If you need advice, post a comment on one of my older posts with your question, and I’ll get to it within the week.
