Where is My Sister?

My sister visits my house every weekend, but this weekend she is not here.

I am sad because I miss my sister a lot.

My sister's name is Sally, and she is my best friend.

I need to phone her because I don't understand why she is not here.

“Hi, Sally, where are you? Why are you not at my house?”

“Hi, Becky! I am so sorry, I cannot visit you today, I am very busy.”

“But Sally, you visit me every weekend. Why are you very busy?”

“I know, I want to visit, but I have to go to the supermarket. I have to visit the mechanic, I have to clean my house, and I have to go to the post office. I have so many things to do, I have no more time.”

“Okay, Sally, I understand. I am sorry that you are busy, I can help you with your jobs if you want?”

“Thank you for the offer, but it is much too boring for you.

You can help me when I have more fun things to do, like go shopping for clothes.”

“Ah, yes, okay. Take me with you when you shop for clothes, I love this idea!”

“This does not surprise me, Becky! I have to go now, I miss you, see you next weekend instead.”

“Perfect, see you later, Sally. Take care.”
