Funny Portuguese Confusion
This is Keri and I have a funny Portuguese story. When we arrived in PoA two months ago, we had wonderful missionary friends that made this house feel like our home. Larry and Marla Green worked to have our house completely set up and ready for us when we arrived. They did such a great job and we are so thankful to them. Well, Marla left me what I thought was body lotion. I didn't really pay much attention to the bottle except that it said, in Portuguese of course, intensive hydration creme. So, I didn't think anything else other than lotion. I started using it that day and it was wonderful. I felt soft and smooth and it smelled wonderful. Ok, so I've been using this stuff for 2 months now and last night I was putting it on my feet before bed and when I was done I put the bottle on my night stand. I then went and tucked kiddos into their beds and when I got back to my room, I sat on the edge of the bed and that bottle caught my eye. I saw on the back that it said, "After you wash your hair....". I thought what in the world does this stuff have to do with your hair. So, as I read more I figured out that I have been putting a hair conditioner all over my body for two months. I sat there and laughed and laughed and couldn't believe that I hadn't noticed that before now. But Paul told me that the hair on my arms is really soft!
