That's the sort of random set of sentences we need for the next Following Sea challenge.

They do seem to have a unifying theme. I especially like the dubious voice saying 'the doctors say it is safe...' when you put that together with 'it is a HUMAN hand...'

It would have to be a Halloween Horror challenge at this rate! XD

I'm suspecting a Torchwood link.

Those give me goosebumps!! They're the kind of sentences you get at the beginning of a 'mystery' book. My brain is already running away with "okay, they just found this dessicated hand in a trunk in the attic, and it's human!Whose hand IS IT?? How long has it been there? Where is the rest of the body??Who did the nasty deed??,Why?,etc. Enquiring minds want to KNOW!!!

I love your sentences. It reminds me of a German class I took. We learned names of things that could be in a room, then had to partner up and describe where things are. "The chair is next to the desk." Things like that.

My partner and I seemed to be of the same sense of humor, because we used a cat for everything. "The cat is under the rug." "The cat is outside the window." "The cat is in the wall." The teacher came over and asked how could that be, and we used a word we had learned the previous week: "Die katze ist kaputt." -- "The cat is broken (dead)".

Okay, now this is odd. I googled because I wasn't sure I was going to spell kaputt right, and that phrase is in the Urban Dictionary. o.O

We have non-dead cats in the walls of the building where I work. There's sort of a vent-thingy that they go in and out.

I'm glad they're not dead! I can promise you, I don't find dead cat jokes funny nowadays. :) This was back in college, a long time back.

I really had no idea that Spaniards were so sinister.

The Spanish speakers around here are not from Spain, but they, and the actual Spaniards that I have known were pretty cheerful, generally.

I like the gloomy quality of 'these are not the best horses' too. I wonder in what way the horses are deficient.

Maybe that's the key! Your Spanish speakers are perfectly normal cheerful people. Whereas Spanish Spanish speakers are strangely sinister. *nods* That must be it.

I wonder in what way the horses are deficient.
Three legs?

Or maybe 8 legs like sleipner. (Makes for a smooth ride, I am sure.)

When I went to Spain, everyone was elegant and relatively cheerful. They also all spoke English to me, so my rusty Spanish stayed rusty. It was a quick trip anyway. I managed to ask for water in Spanish.

I believe that Archie knew a good horse from a better one and could give us pointers.

following recent food scares in Britain the closeness of " the doctors say its safe "
and " these are not the best horses "

is a worrying conjunction :(
