It was a sunny Sunday afternoon. Bobby, Connie, and Joseph were in the alley with their bikes
trying to decide where to go.
“Can we go to the bookstore?” asked Connie. “There’s a new SAT practice book I want to get.”
“No way!” replied Joseph. “Can’t you get it someother time when we’re not with you?”
“The SAT’s aren’t going to wait ‘some other time’!” retorted Connie. “I need it now!”
“Guys, guys, you don’t kneed to fight over me.” said Bobby. “How about we go to the bookstore
long enough so Connie can get her book, and then we can do something else.”
“Fine!” replied Connie and Joseph.
Bobby, Connie, and Joseph rode their bikes to the bookstore. They walked inside and were
disappointed to see that there weren’t any other kids inside.
