Now, we all know Duolingo can throw out some strange sentences that make you think “when on earth would I use them”. But sometimes Duolingo is spookily accurate.
For six months in 2019, my brother and his girlfriend (S&K) lived with me. One evening they helped me sort out my study, which had been a dumping room pretty much since I’d moved in. After the fifth or sixth unopened letter we found, some of which were dating back to before I’d moved, it became a running joke that I don’t open my letters.
They left last November and this little sentence popped up a couple of weeks ago – Duolingo is picking up where they left off!
S&K have a cat – the Fluff-Ball. Their neighbour has a pig in their garden. Despite The Fluff-Ball being a solitary kinda animal. The kind who thinks she’s hard but her version of that is to stare unrelentingly at someone/thing then running away if they move even slightly. No friends kinda woman. Anyway, she loves the pig. Proper hang-out buddies. You heard it from Duo first!
