Knowing him, I bet he did. And here he was making us believe he was in mourning.

Alfonso will become famous soon enough
Poli: corrigiera.
But, to me, it sounds more close and charming: Me ayuda(rá) si corrige mis errores. This is a Condicional real, the one you use is a Condicional hipotética, so it seems as you weren't confident on people to correct you. Are you?

That wasn't Jaimito yet. I don't feel any remorse.
I'm still wicked hungry.

That wasn't Jaimito yet doesn't make any sense. What d'you mean?

It was just a dead body, not Jaimito. Does it make sense now? Do I have to change anything? Is the deixis clear? All these doubts make me feel terrible unhappy. Please, solve them.

What you wanted to say was: It wasn't Jaimito any more.
Don't be unhappy any more, we all love you.

Es que trato de cambiar el modo de decir cosas. Estoy jugando con las
palabras buscando otras rutas (algunas no tan buenas) para llegar al mismo destino. Claro que tengo confianza en la gente que me corrigen. Te aviso el momento que sorspecho que una conspiración entre tú, Gemma, y Crotalito para confundirme.

Entonces, la cremación era un barbecue.
¿Preparaste una salsa o lo comiste así crujiente? Seguro que pobre Jaimito
no era suficiente y fuiste al parque matando pájaros con piedras para
satisfichar tu wicked hunger.

Poli, I thought you were a sweet-tempered guy. How can you be so insensitive in the face of Jaimito's death?

Yeah, you all love me, but I'm hungry all the same.
I will have to review the thread where I learnt Not to be... yet. Is it possible what I wrote?
Thanks a lot for your great help. Yours and that from Poli.
