Last week I made a suggestion to my cousin Alex, offering

to take him to an amusement park. He was very excited

because it was his favourite place. However, from the moment I

picked him up, he was very noisy, which surprised me since

his behavior was normally very different. At one point,

while waiting to get on a ride, he disappeared. Luckily, the manager,

who was very helpful, found him an hour later amongst a crowd. Apparently, Alex had seen a famous basketball player and

wanted his autograph. He apologized to me immediately but I

was so angry at him that we left. It was then that I made the

decision never to take Alex out again.
