What story can you construct based on Duolingo phrases? I will start you off. All mistakes are mine. I have not finished the course yet.

Miré por la ventana. Ella no me miró.
—¿Qué pasó aquí?
—Es seguramente mi elefante. ¿Es su gato el que está durmiendo en mi mono?
—No, es mi novio.
—¿Tu novio? ¡Ese puerco está debajo de la mesa!

Fixed. Thanks. Can you tell me how to format each sentence on to a new line? They are all on new lines in the edit window but they become bunched up after posting :(

To start a new line without the double space, at the end of the sentence, type 4 spaces, then enter: [space][space][space][space][enter]
Then you get single space formatting!

To single space, hit space bar four times, then hit enter.

You mean something like this:

-¿Qué pasó aquí?

-Miré por la ventana.

If so, just press twice the enter key.

hahahaha, that's correct and funny. I love it when these things make no sense at all!

It may sound strange, but I learned a lot through these 'non'-sense sentences. I really started to understand them in my head and not just use some 'translate-guess' combination, because guessing won't work with most of them.

Besides that, my all-time favorite still is: "La cebolla es mía."
