This sentence sounds like one of those code phrases spies use when meeting other spies in movies:

"The small boy does not fall every evening."

"Yes, but the crickets are silent."

It sounds like the first few words of a sentence from a Child Protective Services report. It continues "... despite what the parents claim."

URGH. sometimes it accepts gach as each but in this case not. Inconsistent!
