It was a cold day and I was getting ready to go out.
“ Then don’t, I will be back for lunch.”
“ Why don’t you buy us some cake on your way home?”
“ I hope I won’t forget.”
When I returned Pomi was sitting in the stairwell.
“ And of course you forgot.”
“ Forgot what?”
“ The cake I told you to buy.”
“ I’m sorry. I really did forget. We are moving house so buying cake was not really on my mind.”
“ That was not a promise.”
“ There is nothing sweet in the house. No cake, no candy?” Pomi ranted. “ What am I supposed to do? I feel like something sweet.”
