Olivia: Wasn’t the Halloween party at Sam’s house amazing?
Angela: Hi guys!




Mark: It was the most fun party I have ever been too.


Ben: I loved the chili and all the food!


Amber: Too bad the costume contest didn’t go better. Did you hear that Sam’s Mom leg is broken after she tripped over the witch’s broom? Ouch!
Angela: That was great!



Everybody looks at Angela shocked! Angela thinks they don’t like her, gets embarrassed and walks away.



Discussion:

How does Angela feel? 
How would you feel?  
What would you do?

What was the communication

(Angela thinks. I missed something.) 

Angela: What’s wrong? Weren’t we talking about the Halloween party?




Amber: Yes, but I just said, Sam’s Mom broke her leg when she tripped during the costume contest. She’s using crutches.
I guess you didn’t hear that. Sorry!
Angela: Oh my! I hope Sam’s Mom get better soon. 


Now, I know why you all gave me those funny looks. I’m glad I asked.
