The Errand

A nice simple script from James. Note that James leaves the variables blank whereas other script authors like Jim and Anne put in underlined names. It doesn’t matter.

The Errand

wants (something)
in order to find
goes/comes back returns

_ wants a _. _ says to _, “I want _. Find _ for me. After you find _, come back to me!”

_ hurries to _ in order to find _. But _ doesn’t find _ in _. _ is scared because _ wants _. _ doesn’t go back to _.

_ hurries to _ in order to find _. Finally _ finds _. _ goes back to _. _ gives _ to _ and says, “You wanted _; therefore I found _.”

Latin version:

cupio (+ acc.) ut inveniret redit

_ _ cupit. _ _ dicit, “ego _ cupio. inveni mihi _. postquam tu _ invenisti, redi ad me!”

_ ad _ contendit ut _ inveniret. sed _ _ in _ non invenit. _ est perterritus/a quod _ _ cupit. _ ad _ non redit.

_ ad _ contendit ut _ inveniret. tandem _ _ invenit. _ ad _ redit. _ _ _ dat et dicit, “tu _ cupivisti; igitur ego _ inveni.” _.

  1. Nice script. I do like the words in the script though, because it allows one to quickly see which words are replaced by what. If I see the same name twice, I know the new name goes both places. That part just makes my life a little easier.
