You decide that you can be as mean to these girls as they're being to you. You see your neighbor's goat, Lillie, walking along the lane.
"Good morning, Lillie," you say. "I'm glad you came along, or else I would have had to walk to school all by myself. I usually walk with two of my friends, but the only girls I see today are these two ugly ones."
Gwen turns to April. "Oh, my gosh!" she says. "She talks to goats!"
"Yeah!" says April. "She's not only a big liar, she's crazy, too!"
Your insult didn't work...in fact, it made things worse! The two girls rush off towards the school, leaving you standing alone, even more angry and hurt than before.
