Daiki got an email from Eric the day after Christmas.

From: Eric <eric.perez@example.com>

To: me


Hey, Daiki! I’m in trouble. I think Miho is mad at me. Do you remember when I asked you for ideas for Miho’s Christmas present? You recommended wine, and I thought it was a good idea. But when I gave Miho a box of wine, she didn’t look happy. Now she’s giving me the silent treatment! I don’t understand the problem. Maybe I should give her a box of chocolates or a bottle of perfume too. What do you think?

Julie wasn’t feeling well yesterday, so I offered to go grocery shopping for her. She asked me to buy a box of detergent, two bags of rice crackers for our daughter, and a bottle of soy sauce. At the store I saw my old friend Nick. We talked for a while, and I forgot to pick up some of the items on the list. Now Julie is mad at me because I forgot the soy sauce and rice crackers. She told me that she can’t trust me. I’m really sorry, Julie!
