Nha odjus ta fitxa óras ki N ta kumesa skova denti. N ta obi nha mai ta faze kafé di palmanhan ku présa. Poku poku N kumesa ta pensa. Nha menti forma txeu ideia.

I si nha piskós éra dés bês más kunpridu? Metádi na kaza, metádi na skóla, N pode obi profesóra sen sai di kaza.

image

I si nhas pérna éra altu sima arvís? Prédiu di nha skóla ta txigaba sô ti nhas duedju.

image

I si nhas brasu éra uma fórti? Asi, karega nha mai ka ta sérba difísil.

I si nha bariga éra uma rodóndu? Tudu nhas amigu podia saltaba na nha bariga!

I si N tinha orédja uma grandi i flekisível? N podia obiba tudu kuza, pértu i lonji.

image

Inda N tinha skova na mô. N ri ta pensa na nha mundu sekrétu.
