Hi, Josh! I just wanted to tell you about yesterday - I had the most embarrassing moment in my life! I was in the Blue Parrot Deli with Susi. Mel came in but I didn't see her. She sat behind our table. I told Susi how great she looked and asked her if she wanted to go to the movies with me. She was surprised. "What about Mel?" she asked. And I said, "Oh, that's over." Suddenly Mel was there at our table. She threw her milkshake all over my new T-shirt and walked out. What do I do now?
I know you are older and wiser* 1 than me. Bye, Todd

Thank you for your e-mail. I can understand why you are worried and I’ll try to help. I know that I am your older brother but I am not always wiser. I met a girl last week at the station. Our train was late so we started talking. It was so interesting that we missed the next two trains and I arrived home at midnight. I sent my girlfriend, Tania, a text message to say that I couldn't get home earlier because there were no trains. I didn’t say a word about the other girl.
The problem was that Tania was on the first train. She was surprised when I didn't get on. And she was really angry about the fact that I lied to her.
Maybe you and I need to be more careful or more honest! If you really like Mel, then you shouldn’t do anything to hurt her. I hope this helps. Write and let me know what happens.

I was on my bike, on the way home from school. I wanted to be a pop star and I started to sing my favorite song - it was really loud. I imagined that the bell on my bike was a microphone.
I threw back my head and closed my eyes - suddenly the bike hit a car. It was outside the house of a boy in my class.
I didn't hurt myself. But I looked up. He was there at the door with another boy from my class. I felt like a real idiot. Emma, LA Near the end of the homecoming dance I went to the bathroom.
When l got back, everyone had a partner for a slow dance. There was only one person who was alone. It was our new sports teacher. She asked me to dance and I couldn't say 'no'! Just imagine! I was only five feet two and she was over 6 feet tall. My friends all started to laugh and I couldn't dance because I was so embarrassed1.
