Informal Letter

Dear Mina,

How are you? __________________ I feel terrible about the lie I told you last week. I’d like to _________________________ why I did it.

When my best friend Sara called to tell me that she was going to have a party for her birthday, I realized that your theatrical performance was on the same day. I thought I’d be able to attend both, as her party was at 7 and your performance didn’t start until 9:30. but when I was at Sara’s party, I completely lost track of time. At some point I looked at my watch and it was 9:15. I knew I wouldn’t manage to get to the theatre on time with all the traffic, so I sent you a text message saying that I was ill.

After that, I felt ___________________ and I deeply regretted sending you that message. It was stupid and unjustifiable. __________________, I know I would feel really hurt and it would be difficult for me to forgive you. I’m so sorry and I hope that you can forgive me.

Jenny, I really didn’t mean to offend you. ______________ nothing like that will happen again!

Lots of love,
