Have you ever?

Have you ever ordered curtains from a lady in your living room, while speaking different languages than one another? I know, it is a scenario I couldn’t have dreamed up, but that is exactly how I spent my Friday evening. Good thing I had Chris here to translate, but he felt inadequate as curtain terminology wasn’t forefront on his “list of words to learn”. We pointed at her fabric samples and I used Google Images to communicate preferences. Chris used Google Translate. She said a whole lot, but in the end, he understood the basics. I wonder how it will all turn out.
