Text conversation between best friends Brooke and Sam:
Brooke: Hey, Sam! Do you want to go to the beach today?
Sam: Sorry, girl. I’d love to, but I’m at a family reunion. We’re 3 hours away. 😦
Brooke: Aw, man! I haven’t seen you in weeks! Summer’s almost over. 😦
Sam: I know! I wish I could leave.
*Several seconds later*
Sam: …You know, I could just ask my sister if she’ll let me take her car. I’ll pay gas money.
Brooke: Really?! Do you think she’d let you do that? She’d have to go home with your parents then.
Sam: Oh, yeah. She probably wouldn’t be cool with that.
Brooke: Doesn’t she owe you a favor, though? You DID convince Ray to ask her out.
Sam: You’re right. But still. This would be asking a HUGE favor.
Brooke: Yeah, but it’s worth a try.
Sam: Okay. I’ll text you back after I ask her.
Phone call between Sam and her sister Jess:
Sam: *Calls Jess and eagerly waits for her to answer*
Jess: Ugh. What do you want, freak?
Sam: Uh…I was wondering…
Sam: Could I borrow your car?
Jess: *Serious voice* To go where?
Sam: To go home?
Jess: WHAT?! *Laughs loudly* You’re joking, right?
Sam: No. I just want to hang out with Brooke.
Jess: So I’m assuming you want me to go home with Mom and Dad?
Sam: I know it sucks! I’m sorry! But just this one time! Please?!
Sam: Come on! I got Ray to ask you out. You owe me.
Jess: I’ll do you a favor sometime, but I’m not letting you take my car. *hangs up phone*
A few seconds later, Jess texts Sam.
Jess: I really hope you were joking.
