Before a friend went on holidays to Thailand with his family, I asked him to bring me a souvenir. He promised to bring me a packet of banana sweets.
I saw my friend today. I was really looking forward to my banana sweets and then he gave me the bad news.. He said his daughter had found the sweets he'd bought me and had eaten them. He was very apologetic and tried to make up by offering me a chewing gum It took me a minute or two to get over my disappointment.
When I went home later, I received a wonderful surprise - a banana cake that my mother had been inspired to bake. It was delicious!
