Sticky situation →
[More:]A close friend invited me to see one of my old friends perform his music on Saturday night. I said I would go. Close friend emails me back and says, "Yay! Bonnie and Clyde might come too."
I do not like Clyde. He gives me the creeps. I don't want to socialize with him. Clyde is related to my friend. I can't come out and say, "I'm not going if Clyde is going."
What to do? Make an excuse? Lie? I suck at this. I don't like doing it.
