Diary of a wimpy kid series? :) Or maybe the novels from Roald Dahl.

A few days ago, after watching the film Cars, I dreamt that my father gave my 6 year old daughter a car so she could drive to school by herself. I remember that I was quite angry with my father when he put my daughter in the driver's seat and told her to drive carefully.

The person below me has already been hypnotized.
Please correct my mistakes. I'd really appreciate it ❤

Yes, of course, that put an end to my nail biting and hair tearing :D
I'm thinking to ask for more sessions of hypnosis to get over my fear of playing solos in concerts :doggy: :|

The person after me fears hypnosis.

Hmm, you could say, "Kids are very heavy." Or, to fully spell out the connection with the rest of the post, "I think it's very hard to cycle with children because they're so heavy."

The person after me has given virtual lessons with Teams or another system and has good advice on how to teach without seeing the people you're talking to.

The sound wasn't so bad and he was able to tell me how to hold the instrument and blow... But I did many a lot of demos and screen sharing during my home-office time :)

The person after me looks forward to going back to the cinema but isn't trusting the anti-COVID measures.

"Demo" is countable, but "screen sharing" is uncountable, so if you want to modify them with the same quantifier, the quantifier has to work with both kinds of noun. "A lot of" fits the bill.

I don't know. I've never been in a situation where it was an option. I'd probably be nervous if I were going to be hypnotized, but not afraid exactly.

The person after me is a bitcoin evangelist.

I'd rather listen to Bohemian Rhapsody.

I hate both of them.

The person after me has been interviewed and will appear on a TV show.

Neither. I have never been interviewed and I will definitely never go on a TV show.

The person after me will eat 5 different fruits and 5 different veggies today.

No, only two kinds of fruit today, and three type of vegetables. Unless you count potatoes as vegetables, then five kinds of vegetables.

The person after me has seen a rainbow today.

(Why didn't I get the fruit and veggie question, I'm a specialist over the matter) :lol:
No, the sky was bright blue and dry, no rainbow to talk about!

The person after me has been donated 5 kilos of pears and is wondering how not to lose some and store then cleverly.

(German-speakers, in general, use too many commas, when they write, in English.)

Also, there's a distinction here that you may or may not be aware of:
"I like hearing Queen on the radio" (I like it when I'm listening to the radio and they play Queen)
"I like listening to Queen on the radio" (I listen to the radio in order to hear them play Queen)

The person after me has been donated 5 kilos of pears and is wondering how not to lose some and store then cleverly.

So you'd think donate would be a ditransitive verb just like give, but you'd be mistaken; it's just a regular ol' transitive verb which can express a recipient as the object of a prepositional phrase. That is:

He gave me pears.
He gave pears to me.
I was given pears by him.

BUT:

*He donated me pears.
He donated pears to me.
*I was donated pears by him.

Only "He donated pears to me" is fully acceptable IMD.

Nobody has given me any pears, but if they did, I'd look for a way to reduce their bulk, probably by stewing them down. I'm not much on canning and I don't have anything to juice them with either.

The person after me prefers perry to cider.

Well, I don't believe Jesus exist either. But sometimes I wish I'd believe it just for the pleasant illusion that praying makes a difference.

Not in an active way. I guess I eat two or three vegan dinner meals each week. But I really love eggs and cheese so it won't become more probably.
