Dear Carol

"Dear Carol, I don't know who to invite to my birthday party!"

Dear Carol,
My birthday is coming up, and I want to have friends over. Some of my friends are popular, and others are kind of geeky (not a bad thing). They don't like each other, but I don't want to invite one group and not the other. I am also worried what the popular people will think if I invite the geeky people.

Dear Totally Confused,
I think you should be brave and invite everybody but, if that doesn't feel right, can you have two parties? Throw a sleepover for one group; host a movie matinee for the other. Don't go crazy over this. It's your party, and your friends have to like you—not each other. Happy Birthday!
