This morning Jackson and I walked to the mall, a good 25 minute walk. It’s not a particularly hot day but it’s cloudy so it’s just kind of steamy. When we got to the mall I let him out of the stroller to walk around a bit. He ran to a TV display in an electronics store. We stood watching for a minute. As I was standing there, I started experiencing a delayed sweat. I often don’t sweat while I’m outside but instead once I get into the cool again my face starts sweating buckets. And that’s what I was doing, in the middle of the mall. All of a sudden a Skate Canada commercial came on the TVs we were watching. It was the weirdest thing–sweating profusely while watching figure skating!
(Sorry for all of you who are disillusioned by my admission that I do, on occasion, sweat. I promise most of the time I just “glisten”, as a proper lady should. But when you live in Brazil, sometimes you just can’t help it!)
Yesterday was a bit of a break for me since we didn’t have English class. It was, however, our monthly ladies’ lunch and class. This month we had two of our members, Veronica and Jaciara teach, which would have been awesome except that Veronica is my number one lunch maker. I decided to make lunch this week to help her out. In the process of cutting up tomatoes for the beans, I sliced my finger open and now I have a bandaid on the tip of my finger which greatly interferes with my typing skills. I’m using my backspace key a lot today! Anyway, they did a wonderful job teaching–they were both really nervous–and it was one of those classes where everyone ends up crying, which for a ladies’ class is usually a good sign!
