Laura’s friend’s birthday was just three days ago. The problem was Laura forgot about it. After it was too late, she remembered, and called her friend up. “I’m so sorry I forgot your birthday” she said. “Forget it. I don’t mind, I was working anyway,” said her friend. “But I want to make it up to you. Why don’t we go to the beach on Saturday, and have a small party there?” she asked. “That sounds OK. But don’t forget about the party on Saturday night, you promised you would come to that already.” Laura suddenly remembered that promise. She said, ‘Of course, of course,’ but she was glad she was talking on the phone so her friend couldn’t see how upset she was. She had totally forgotten about that promise! Laura was lucky she had such good friends, and she was lucky that she was talking on the phone, too.
