In the real world people almost never say boring things like “I go” or “The dog barks”. It’s always “I’m going to the library, be back in a minute” or “Why in the world is that dog barking so loud at 3 in the morning?”
But saying complex sentences require a lot of grammar we haven’t covered yet so for the next several strips you’re just going to have to deal with artificially boring sentences.
私 = わたし = I; me
行く = いく = to go

Yellow: In that case I’m going home.
