The Color was the Key

Last Saturday evening, I picked up my daughter at a station and went to a sport shop with her to get her gym clothes. Beforehand I called the shop to tell our family name and her grade because we have to let him stitch the name. The color of the stitch thread depends on the grade. The color of her grade is green. I thought I should've told him not only the grade but also the color. However, I trusted him because he really knew well about her school when I went there before.
So I didn't tell him it. But unfortunately he made the mistake. He used a red thread.

I go around there on Wednesdays for my English lesson, but the shop is closed on the day, so I have to go there another day.
色が大事だったの。

先週土曜の夕方、私は娘を駅で拾って体操着を取りに一緒にスポーツ用品店へ行った。名前を刺繍してもらうために事前に電話して名字と学年を伝えておいた。刺繍糸の色は学年によって違う。娘の学年の色は緑だ。彼に学年だけでなく、色も言ったほうがいいかなと思ったけど、前に言った時に学校のことをとてもよく知っていたので信用して言わなかった。だけど、彼はその間違いをした。赤い糸を使ってしまった。

英会話クラスのために毎週水曜にそのあたりに行くのだけど、お店はその日がお休みなので、別の日に行かなくちゃ。
