Andrew’s Saturday night is very different from the way I usually spend my Saturday night. I never go to the cinema. I only sometimes watch films on that are on TV.
I think my Saturday night is a lot like Tess's, except that my friends and I don't have pyjama parties. But we do visit each other's houses, where we play CDs, watch television, gossip, put on make-up and give each other beauty treatments.
I think that's probably why I like Tess's Saturday night best. We have the same interests and hobbies, I think. Although it would also be cool if my friends and I could skate, like Dave. That sounds cool, too.

Hey mum, I’d like to go to one of the London Kids Events. I’d like to go bungee jumping.
>Excuse me? Bungee jumping? Are you out of your mind? What kind of event is this?
It’s one of the London Kids Events. You can bungee jump off the Big Ben. Isn’t that great?
>Eh. No. That doesn’t sound so great, actually. It sounds dangerous!
You don’t have to do it, mum! Can I go? I’d love to!
>No. I think it’s much too dangerous. You can go the minute you’ve turned eighteen years old. Until then: no!
Tsss. Ok then. What about The New Voice? It’s a talent show. You know how I love to sing. It’s nothing like bungee jumping of course…
>That sounds much better. Of course you can go. Have a nice time.
Yeah. Great. Thanks a lot.

Would you like to meet before your party? How about going to the cinema? Or do you want to go for a burger? I’d love to see that new film that's playing.
By the way, am I allowed to bring a friend to your party?
