    Mom! Dad! On Saturday can we …

    … go to the rocks and minerals show?

    … go to the horse show?

    I really want to find a cool new rock for my collection.

    I could take my sketchpad to draw the horses.

    Remember, we decided we’d spend this Saturday together. But after our chores, we’ll only have time for one activity.

    Why don’t you two work out a solution?

    We could flip a coin, but if I lose, I’m gonna be really bored at the horse show.

    Yeah, I feel the same about the rock show. … Hey! Let’s find something we both like to do!

    I don’t think Mom would let us eat cupcakes all afternoon.

    I’ve got an idea! That movie we’ve been wanting to see is at the dollar theater now.

    Brilliant!
