We've seen how we can use commas to indicate circumstances.

One time I went out back with my favorite toy, a plastic Tinkerbell figurine.

This snippet is effective because it raises a tiny question—what is their favourite toy?—before answering it with a little extra detail.

After maths I went outside to eat my favourite lunch, a meatball sub.

Before I could play games I had to do the worst thing of all, my English homework.

To make up for it I bought Moses something he really wanted, a set of bassy headphones.
