Lost in translation

So Alho means garlic… an “o” or “a” is “the”

and this is the sign we drove past yesterday on the way back from the doctor.

Yeah I know it’s perfectly legit, but still as an English speaker it’s funny. For the record assoalhos translates to floors in Portuguese. So it’s just a funny word I guess, to a couple of juvenile Americans.

I'm just another soul on the internet, posting random thoughts into the ether, because well I love stumbling on other peoples random thoughts, so I figured why not add mine to the mix too. I'm also the mom to two very funny little boys, and how can you not share that with everyone?
