Mnemonic


[xi-] Xena is in [1] front of the [-(e)ng] English manor looking to trade her pet 犭 poodle for a pet that is more suitable for a warrior princess: a 猩 orangutan. She puts up a sign advertising her desire to trade. Suddenly an 生 alien comes down from the 日 sun and lands in front of her. The 生 alien gives Xena an 猩 orangutan that shines as bright as the 日 sun, takes the 犭 poodle, and leaves Xena alone on the immaculate lawn with her new pet.
