Oops! Learned the hard way to include "con."

"Yo como con mi tía" and "Yo como mi tía" are two very different sentences.

Yep. You need a personal 'a' in that second sentence. ;)

But NOT in the first one. Dang it! At the last second I added one!

Como con mi tia should be accepted as well.

It accepted Como con mi tia for me.... weird

why it is mi and not mia tia?

Its the difference between "my" and "mine". "Mi tia" = my aunt, but "mia tia" = mine aunt.

So, If you speak like an LOTR dwarf, your answer will be counted wrong.

Sadly, this is the case Sammorland. I do want mine percentage to go up to mine goal of the fifty one.
