Due to recent events

I now must ask 'Do you speak Portuguese' before I can say the name of my mission.

Turns out, the t sounds like an h or something that, so I feel too stupid saying it in front of people who actually know how it is supposed to sound. I know already that this is setting me up to be one of those missionaries who comes back saying I went to BraSil and having a missionary accent. Whatever, maybe it will be cool by the time I come back.

If one more person says...

that I am going to gain weight on my mission I might lose it. Not that it probably is going to happen, but really, do we need to talk about it before it happens?

So this week as I went to get a good pair of walking church shoes- Here is an actual conversation that happened at the shoe store, with no exaggeration.

me: these are too big
mom: well you are going to gain weight on your mission
me: not in my feet (turn to the sales lady) She keeps telling me I am going to gain weight.
sales lady: (looks me up and down) you probably will.
