    Hi thanks for reading.

    Tonight is one of my best friends 18th birthday and we were going to go clubbing but about an hour ago I sprained my ankle. It's swollen as anything so can't really go clubbing! Basically what's the kindest way to tell my friend I can go? I feel really guilty bailing last minute

    Many thanks.

    There's honestly no need to be precious about it. If she's a true friend, she'd rather you tell her the truth last minute that not show up at all with no explanation
