Words that sound the same...

 Tonight J and I went grocery shopping.  We had a great time at the grocery store and came home giggling. Our husbands were a little suspicious that we had that much fun shopping, but what can I say?  Doing things together makes life so much better.  :)

 However, J did look at me a little strangely when I thanked her for going grocery shopping with me.  It turns out that in Russian(or maybe it was Ukrainian), the word for money sounds a lot like grocery.  J kept wondering why I was saying that we were going to the money store.  We laughed.   Cross-cultural friendships are great for laughing. :)
