New Spanish Sentences

You really can make a sort of story of them. Imagine them as prompts...

1. We don't know who is human

2 What does she feel for your husband?

3 He pretends that the man is a penguin

4 The knife will not work

5 If you count last night....

There has to be a story in there somewhere. It seems to be a love triangle, involving someone who is way too into penguins, and a married couple  Also maybe space aliens in disguise Looks like it is going to end in violence. I am imagining an old movie, like Black Lagoon.

What do you guys think?

The sentences are getting a little more complex, as I move along. Gives more scope for weirdness. I particularly like the one about the penguin...

Oh Lordy! The mind boggles what dizzy heights of weirdness you'll ascend to as the course advances! Was this Spanish course designed by Salvador Dali?!

My mother recalls "Saddle the camel for early dawn tomorrow" from a phrase book when she was passing through Egypt in the 1950s ...

A very good friend has a sentence embedded in her memory from French lessons almost 40 years ago

about a boat arriving at St Jean de Luz and two customs men waiting on the quay to meet it

over the years we have constructed many versions of what happened next when on long car trips or stuck in traffic !


but I agree with Anteros - either Dali- or perhpas Gabriel Garcia Marquez !

Those Spaniards-- mysterious fellows...

In French all I ever did was declare handkerchiefs. We were supposed to be at customs-- how many would you have to buy to have to declare?

Also the word for swimming pool (la piscine) because the teacher said it was like 'piss-in'!
