Friendship puzzler #294: Your friend brags that he's a better skateboarder than you are. You should:

  1. Say, “Nuh-uh! You stink!
  2. Ask, "Can you show me how to do that new trick?"
  3. Say, "Hmmm," then change the subject.
  4. Pull off your socks, stuff them into your mouth, and then spit them at your friend.

Answer: B or C. Getting into an argument with your friend about who’s a better skateboarder isn’t interesting or fun. If your friend actually does have some skills you’d like to learn, why not ask for his help? Otherwise, just change the subject and keep playing. Option D isn’t a good idea because socks aren’t very tasty.
