Singing in Portuguese

Sister Erika Riggs wishing her brother, Michael, a happy birthday!

Funny story: The other day we were looking for the house of a less active member. I had been given the directions to her house by the relief society president...but no one in the ward knew house number, which make things a little difficult. The directions were "she lives on your street (which is suuuuper long), across from the blue hotel, above the "movéis" store." So we walked down our street, found a blue hotel and across the street was a movie store. The only problem was that the movie store only had one one could live above it. So we told the relief society president what had happened and she was super confused when I said there was only one story. She insisted that she lived ABOVE the store and I insisted that there WAS NO ABOVE the store that sold videos. She paused and asked:
Irmã: "videos?what about videos?"
Me: The "movéis" store? The one that rents and sells videos?" turns out that movéis in Portuguese means a place that builds furniture...who would have thought?

It´s rained like crazy this past few days and as you can see in the picture, my umbrella which was supposedly indestructable, just couldn´t handle it.
