" I've never had a gel with such an unusual smell," said Carlo as he preened himself in front of the bathroom mirror, "but, it's nice though, sort of minty."
That got my attention and I sniggered to myself. I got up to check if I was right, and yes, for the last two weeks he has been styling his hair with King of the Shaves Shave Gel, left behind by one of my brothers on a recent trip.
"Why are you laughing? Isn't it hair gel?"
"Here's a new word for you to learn in English, shave-rasarsi, farsi la barba.It's not supposed to go in your hair!"
He was embarrassed, he begged me not to tell anyone, but where's the fun in that?
Note: 10 days left to get any soap orders in, as I'll be off to the UK again soon!
