I awaited with bated breath any news of the ant's fate and was saddened to hear of its demise. I can only hope that the bee, that was in the sugar, still lives for it is our only hope.

Fortunately there is water in the sugar, so the bee has a fighting chance.

As we already know, unfortunately the bee remains in the sugar

Stay away from the sugar, it may kill you too!

It is strange what they come up with for sentences here. In the spanish lessons, they had "She will suffer"

And in French "I eat a child." o.O

In French, I like the sentence "I am a spider." (or something like that)

I just have to visit the comments section when sentences are weird ü it did not disappoint.

Death by sugar, what a sweet way to go.

Now, tell this to a diabetic !

It was inevitable.

Sounds like this could be a good idiom :) Does it mean anything else besides the literal translation?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/marziotta

No, but whenever you add something sugary to a trap for ants, it works better. I discovered they love cough sirup.

I guess it died happy, at least.

This sentence is just sick.


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/KingEddy

At least it puts an end to the saga of the ant in the sugar...

This made me laugh :)

    How are you supposed to know that it is "dies" and not "died"?
