I’ve Got Good News
Susanna: I can’t believe I finally won the Great Chocolate Chip Cookie Bake-off. I’ve been trying to do that for three years.
Susan: Hi, Susanna.
Susanna: Look at my certificate. I just won a bake-off.
Susan: Wow! That’s great news. Your family will be so excited. Did you tell Nick yet?
Susanna: (Face falling.) Nick? Not likely.
Susan: But he’ll be so excited that you won! How could you not tell him?
Susanna: Well, let me see. Maybe because last week he put maple syrup in my shampoo bottle and I didn’t figure it out until I didn’t get any suds. Maybe because the week before that he used heat sensitive invisible ink to write “KICK ME” on the back of one of my t-shirts as a joke. Maybe because...
Susan: Okay, okay. I get the picture. He’s been a little busy lately.
Susanna: Let’s just say that if it had been a Great Goofy Tricks on Your Sister contest, Nick would have won.
Susan: When you have good news to share, you should tell other people about it.
Susanna: But what if Nick doesn’t care about my good news?
Susan: You should tell him anyway. Don’t decide that he won’t like it in advance. Share! And you might be surprised anyway.
Susanna: Why is that?
Susan: Brothers tend to appreciate sisters that can bake prize-winning cookies.
Susanna: You’ve got a point.
Nick: Did I hear someone mention cookies?
Susan: See what I mean?
