Hmm... i never really thought about that, but i think you'd just use the
one instance of "i did", although that would probably get a response of
|dhawa?| /Da?wa/ "which?"; saying something like |ilu aza.| "i did
all" would seem to be the way to disambiguate.
"ai ai aide, jogo bonito que eu quiero ver..."
