Wow! I can't believe I, Ernest Turtle, got into this elite and sophisticated party.
Hey Ernest. In order to get initiated into our elite and sophisticated club, you have to drink this alcohol.
Alcohol! I gotta make a decision. Let's review the facts. Drinking will definitely disorient me. And my decision making skills would worsen. And worst of all, it could cause my asthma to act up!!
I could drink the alcohol. Then I would be initiated! But also I won't be able to drive home... OR I could say no and stay at the party, which would be fun... but I could get in legal trouble! OR I could say no and leave. I won't get initiated, but that 's what my morals tell me to do. And my rabbi would approve. And I won't get asthma!
I think I know what to do. The less awkward and risky decision is best.
Hey man, thanks but I should really get going. I have to go swimming and stuff. Yikes. Bye...
I feel confident that I made the right choice. It was easy and I'm too cool for that club anyway! Now I can go watch Netflix and hang out with my mom.
