Shopping with a dictionary?
I am about to leave for my German language course that starts at 9:00 AM, but I have a quick funny story and I am wondering if this has happened to other expats. I went to Aldi (a German grocery store) and I thought I was buying moisturizing lotion for these cold wintelr days. When I first used it I thought to myself, wow--this German lotion is very greasy. Well, M. took a look at it and it turned out to be liquid soap. I guess I need to go shopping with a dictionary??? (These are some of the items we have on a storage shelf. NOTE: There is milk on the shelf and not in the fridge. It can be left out in the warm air until April and it is still good to drink. That seems very strange to an American. Germans also place their eggs on a shelf and not in the refridgerator section of the grocery store. That, too, is so unusual to an American. I will take a photo of it at the grocery store and upload it later....)
