Lost In Translation

We are having a few people over tomorrow.  So the toilet they will, and the toilet they will not be using, and their associated restrooms, have been scrubbed.  Including the bath tubs they will also not be using.  This is a difficulty of translation between Spanish and English.  You tell a hispanic woman she is having house guests, and it crosses the blood/brain barrier translated as “clean the whole entire house including the gutters on the roof, and polish it also.”
