When you were 3 years old, she gave you an ice cream. You thanked her by

When you were 11 years old, she took you and your friends to the movies.
You thanked her by asking to sit in a different row because you were
ashamed or embarrassed.
When you were 12 years old, she warned you not to watch certain TV shows.
