The following is an actual email that I just sent my parents:
Hey Mom, Hey Kevin...
One upon a time, I was a little girl, probably six.
You guys took me to Baskin Robbins, and I asked to have a sundae in a "helmet cup."
You guys said "No, you wont even remember that plastic cup in a couple of days."
Now is your chance to make it up to me... as they have them again. Don't screw up this opportunity.
