El dinosaurio
Cuando despertó, el dinosaurio todavía estaba allí.
-Augusto Monterroso

Probably the shortest tale ever…

Free and horrible translation

The dinosaur
When he woke up, the dinosaur was still there
-Augusto Monterroso

Notice the “he”, in the translation… in the Spanish version, theres is no “he” nor “she” in the tale (you don’t have to refer to who’s doing the action in the Spanish language)… so it could anyone or anything that woke up
