    Post Does this message make sense?

    Hi, I want to ask if the red colored message make sense to write in e-mail or not.

    I never thought kids would come to apartment for a Halloween. I knew they'd come to a house. I gave them 7up instead. Thank god I didn't get *tricked*. Sorry kids.

    It means as it's written. I didn't get ready for treats for kids so I gave them 7up instead.
    I wrote those message by using dictionary so it might be expressed in literary style for English-speaking people. I want express this in more colloquial style.

    I want advice. Thank you.

    P.S I also want an advice for the sentences starting with It means~, if those make sense or not.

    That's fine now.

    P.S I also want an advice for the sentences starting with "It means~",: I want to knowif those make sense or not.
    You'll need to give an example of an 'it means ...' sentence. I am not quite sure what you mean.
