I thought you were supposed to learn useful sentences in language learning. I don't think I'm ever going to visit the Netherlands and hold a conversation in which oranges talk, and ducks drink milk and read books. I mean, it's fine if you want to write a children's book in Dutch maybe? But I'm never going to use such absurd sentences. XD
A man walks up to you with a burgundy cloak on, that has a baggy hood that shades their face a good percentage. They walk up and say in a slightly quiet and monotone voice. He spreads his hands as he says "Goedemorgen, mijnheer". He then makes an "air ball" with his hands about a foot away from each other and says in the same voice: "De sinaasapple spreekt". He holds the golden cross necklace by the bottom ever so gently, then turns around on his heels. He stands there for maybe 5 seconds, then walks down an alley. You run to see where he went in the alley, and nobody is there....................................
I had this weird dream where I was an apple in Holland... After being alone for a while, I screamed to the first person I saw: Hoi!
"De sinaasappel spreekt!" - he screamed back.
"Nee! Ik ben een appel!" - I wasn't that good in Dutch, but at least I knew how to say that! That may not helped much in the dream, but it was totally worth it!
Heres a little story -- see if you can remember the words.
A woman calls up a man. She says "Hallo? Ik ben een vrouw."
The man utterly confused says "Hoi, Ik ben een man."
The woman then says "De sinaasappel spreekt."
The man, again, confused says "De... sinaasappel spreekt...?"
The woman says "Ja! De sinaasappel spreekt!"
The man hangs up with this last word "DAG!!"
It can be combined with another phrase of pure surrealism we learned in a previous lesson (good morning, juice) and then add some more (phrases, not juice). It could go like this: The orange is speaking: "Good morning, juice! Hey, buddy... If only we could be back on the tree..."
