Have you ever played the game “Mad Gab”? It’s a game where one team reads words that have been written phonetically while the other team sees the true words. As the first team is reading the phonetics it sounds like they are actually saying the true words, yet they are totally clueless.
Well, my kids were reading this milk bottle the other day, and it made me laugh because what they were saying sounded like “Soplees Nobody”. In our local language, “Soplees” means something from the village—so it seemed like it was meaning this milk was from the village of nobody. Who wants milk from there?? But the true meaning of the phrase is “a gift from the village”—fresh milk from the village—much nicer sounding! It was a good reminder that we need to listen carefully to the words spoken, and make sure we catch the true meaning of what is being said!
