Regarde! Elle bâille! Quelqu'un est fatigue

Good trick. Ya got me. Quelqu'un clearly refers to Elle, yet it remains masculine. Really? In real life? They're standing looking at a little girl.

Hi Chris,

But is the sense not simply "someone is tired" rather than "she is tired"?

Yes, in real life ! But you also need to remember in speech, the ‘’ gender agreement “ of the adjective is not heard, in this case and many, but not all others.
