Diplomacy, Tact, And How To Lose An Argument

Sharkteeth: There's something bad that I have to tell you...
TPS: [tensing up] What is it, anak? [So many frightening things crossed my mind: her dizzy spells are coming back, she's having fever again, she got into a fight with a classmate and will be expelled, she has a boyfriend afraid...]
Sharkteeth: Well, J [her best friend] is inviting me to hang out this Saturday, but E [her classmate-friend] is inviting me to her birthday party, which is also on Saturday...
TPS: So, why don't you and J go together to E's party?
Sharkteeth: J and E aren't friends. They had a fight when they were in grade II. J doesn't want me to be friends with E, but E is nice to me...

TPS: I see. So what's your plan?
Sharkteeth: If I attend E's party, J's gonna be pissed. If I join J and miss E's party, E is gonna be pissed. I think I'll just stay home this weekend and hang out with you.
TPS: Hmmmppp...third choice lang ako.
Sharkteeth: But you don't hang out with me either.
TPS: Of course, I do. I'm always home.
Sharkteeth: Yes, you are, but you always hang out with the computer.

TPS: Touché.
