The story is just out of reach

Spanish sentences:

It is the size of an egg
Nothing good is ever described as the size of an egg. It is never an emerald, it is almost always an abscess...

It is an enormous bear!
Complete with a exclamation point, so I am guessing we are not at the zoo.

The knife is useful
Against the bear?

The spider eats bread
Sort of a relief, I guess

I was in his vest last month
Another thing I cannot imagine ever saying

I have been sort of neglectful of my Spanish lately. I have been doing the open courses on epidemics and Tudors. (Black death every night here guys!) Also I can knit while I watch the Yale stuff, but for Spanish. I am making a scarf which Rikibeth says is Hufflepuff colors, but which Mike keeps calling the Heffelump scarf. (Are Heffelumps Hufflepuffs?) It is yellow and black. It makes me think of bumblebees. Also, I will have made it, so I am damn well going to wear it this winter!

But lessons like that last one lure me back.

Even with a bear, a knife and a spider, the last one still seems the most bizarre!! Why would I be in my Hubby's vest? (I can't even BEGIN to imagine being in any one ELSE's!!

My DD is a proud Hufflepuff, even in her 20's!

I know. I am collecting up things I will never say. That one is on the list.

One day soon you will find that one single sentence that makes the whole sorry tale fall magically into place...

I was in his vest last month
Have the Lieutenant and the Captain been up to their tricks again?

That must be the explanation. Their clothing got mixed up on the floor!

...OK, now I want to know who writes these sentences, and how they come up with them. Maybe you're actually reading someone's autobiography in haiku form or something!
