Strawberry and Chocolate Cake

IMG_1120_convert_20170216162019.jpg

It was the Valentine's Day.
I gave a box of chocolate to my son before going to school in the morning.
His school teacher had told students on the day before the Valentine's Day that not to bring any chocolate to school on the day.

As my son got some chocolate from girls after school last year, I was expecting who would give them to him this year. Maybe, as did he.
He got home from school earlier than usual because he didn't have his club activity fortunately. So, he was at home. After a while, a door bell rang, but it was only a mail man.

After all, no girls gave any chocolate to him. I'm sorry for him.

Today, I made a Strawberry and Chocolate Cake which I referred this recipe.

As it was Valentine's Day, I gave a box of chocolates to my son before he went to school in the morning.

On the day before Valentine's Day, my son's teacher told the class to not take any chocolates to school on Valentine's Day.

As my son had *received some chocolates from some girls after school last year, I was wondering who would give them to him this year. Perhaps my son had been wondering the same thing.

* Although you could have used 'got', it is ambiguous. To have gotten something from someone could mean anything, from having taken it without the person's knowledge, to having had received it by way of gift. Received is more specific, as it automatically implies he was given it freely.

He got home from school earlier than usual because he didn't have any club activities on that day. So, he was at home when the door bell rang, but it was only the mail man.

By the day's end, no girls had given any chocolates to him. I felt sorry for him.

Today, I used this recipe to make a Strawberry and Chocolate Cake.


Re: English Corrections

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for the corrections.
I was glad to learn the differences between get and receive.

I'm sometimes confused 'take' and 'bring'.
At that time, the teacher was at school, so, I thought that 'bring' was better than 'take'.

My Reply:

The way you had written it was one correct way of writing it. However, it can get confusing. For readers unfamiliar with you, it could mean that you work at the school, or that you were there for some reason. It gets especially confusing when you start talking of multiple instances over time or multiple people. When you always talk in reference to you, the author, everything is kept in perspective at all times.

Hello, Shiroi Tora.

Thank you very much for your answer.

That's too bad that he didn't get any chocolate. Maybe girls don't do much giri-choco at that age, and are more into honmei-choco.

Re: No title

Hello, Always visiting.

Thank you for your comment.
Giri-choco is sometimes bothersome for some boys and men who received because they have to return some sweets on March 14.
