Person 2: Of course. Can I help you with anything?

-Declining Invitations:

Person 1: Did you hear? Dila is throwing a party on Saturday night. She told me you can come.

Person 2: I can’t decide. It sounds like fun but I have to be up really early on Saturday morning. Maybe I should stay at home.

Person 1: I really wish you would change your mind/reconsider. It will only be fun if you are there.

Person 2: I’m sorry. I just don’t think I can. I promise to hang out with you both next weekend. In fact, how about next weekend we all go to the beach together?
