10. Rejecting an Invitation

A: Were you invited to Barb's birthday party?

B: I was. It should be really fun.

A: Do you have a date for the party?

B: As a matter of fact I don't have.

A: Do you want to have a date for the party?

B: Do you know someone?

A: I was thinking maybe you'd want to go as my date.

B: Oh. I don't think that's a good idea.

A: Why not? You said yourself it would be fun.

B: The party would be fun. Going with you would not be.

A: Wow, that's kind of harsh.

B: At least I'm honest.
