Put coals in the stove, so that the milk will start to boil soon.

I'm going to hit you over the head with a wooden spoon, you monkey!
12.
Where are you going? Should we go with you?
13.
The times are bad.

My dear child, stay down here. Those mean geese will bite you to death.

Who did he tell the new story to?
22.
You have to shout loudly, otherwise he doesn't understand us.

We are tired and thirsty.

Didn't you find a piece of white soap on my table?
