I've worked at an ice cream shop all summer. A few weeks ago my sister went on vacation to Virginia Beach for five days. While she was on trip we got a new flavor: peach sorbet. My sister like peaches, sure, but not more than the next person and it's especially not something I would usually think to get her. However, when I saw it I thought "my sister would really like this flavor, I should get her some". On the day she was coming back I went into work and grabbed her a pint. We were sitting in the kitchen eating the sorbet and told me how on Saturday (when we had gotten the flavor) she had been craving peaches. We hadn't talked since she got back from the trip.
