From Where All Good Things Come
One of the things I got Rama over the holidays was a cape with a hood. A fur-lined hood. In pink. It's fab and all. But that's not the point.
I bought this cape online. It got delivered to our building. When you have a parcel that won't fit in the mailbox, concierge slips you a note telling you to pick up your package at the lobby desk. So Rama and I got home one evening. I saw the note and asked the guard to bring out our package. So he handed it to us, and Rama and I went up to our flat and opened it. She loved it, of course.
She's been wearing it and getting all sorts of compliments for it. I overheard this.
Adult: That's a beautiful cape, Rama!
Rama: Thank you.
Adult: Was that a gift?
Adult: Oh, lovely! From whom?
Rama: The guard.
