Yes, I don't live in Australia but want to.
Hmm...somehow it sounds very weird to me...Yes, I don't? ...But if I say "no"...
I need help!



The next person has held a koala in his/her arms!

Yes, I have held a koala in my arms. They are so cute and cuddly, but sometimes a little scary when they aren't happy!

The next person can speak more than two languages.



NileCat-san,
Yes, I don't... does sound weird. You could put a fullstop after the 'Yes', and, since the question was in two parts, you could answer like this...

Yes. I don't live in Australia, but I want to. Or...
No, I don't live in Australia, but I want to.

I think the second is better. Do you get it?!?

NO, I really don't like horses. Since I was bucked off one when I was about 10 years old, I've never liked them. I'm not still scared of them, but just cautious. :D


The next person always wanted to become a doctor.

Nope. We're going to spend the weekend de-babyifying the downstairs in preparation for resuming classes in November. Then we have to go to with my husband's father to trade-in his old car for a newer model. and visit a friend who just had a baby.

The next person is on a diet.
