"We are going to have an American Thanksgiving dinner with the Ambassador. You know the ambassador, don't you?" asks Pierre. "No. I am not going." I reply.
"Florence, Here are the reservations I made for our Thanksgiving dinner. Here is the information, check it out." says the email from my French friend Florence. "Ask Pierre if he has a friend and wants to join us?"
"No, I don't want to join your friends." says Pierre. "My plans are better, I am sure." he adds.
"What are you doing for Thanksgiving? I have one seat open, so don't even think about bringing Pierre." Adrian tells me. "Let me know soon."
"I don't know if I can go with you." I tell Florence.
"I don't want to have dinner with your American Friends." says Pierre.
"I don't want to have dinner with your ambassador." I tell Pierre.
"I want to have dinner with your friends." says French Florence
"No, we can't have dinner with your French Friends." say Adrian.
"We don't celebrate Thanksgiving." says Eric.
