Our theme today is heatwave, and everything in this bucket, is number one, a mystery to Jack. - Yes. - And number two, something that has to do with hot weather. - Yeah and this whole lesson is a mystery to me as well. But this is Kate's idea, it sounds good from what I know. And I think this is gonna be a really good way for you to learn some new words and phrases. You did say that you're going to give them opportunity to say what the item is, right? - That's right. So you're also going to get to test yourself and see if you know the vocabulary for each item I am about to pick out of the bucket. And the last one is a special surprise for Jack. - Oh, fanastic, wow! I'm good at surprises. - Are you? (chuckling) - But okay, just before we get started as well, you're showing seven items? - Approximately. - Okay. And they're all related to heatwave? - Mm-hmm. - We had a mini heatwave last week. - We did. - Did you know they're having a heatwave in the UK at the moment? - Really? - Yeah. - So temperatures are higher than normal? - A lot higher. Just to explain what a heatwave is. - I was about to say, how would you describe a heatwave? - How would you describe a heatwave? So yeah, heatwave is when the, it's like a period of time, usually more than two days, right? When the temperatures, they're not just hot, but they're very hot, it feels really hot outside. And I remember, actually could be a day. Do you remember in Valencia when we came back from Italy, I think, or the UK, and we were living in Spain at the time. I know you want to open this! (chuckling) But we were living in Spain at the time, and there's that one day when it was just, unbelievable. - It was so hot. It felt like we had opened the oven, and we were just standing in front of it constantly. - Well, this feels like Christmas, and I know you want to see what's inside, and we're just going to talk about these items, I guess? And introduce some phrases that we can use with them. Okay, so, item number one. - Item number one! I'm gonna just set this down, no peeking! - Okay, no peeking. - No Peeking. Okay the first item that I have, is not really one to test ourselves on, but I have a cup for you, a cup for me. - Fantastic. - Some ice. - Oh, ice! - Uh huh. Ice and-- - Lemon. - Lemon. - Sorry, it's hard for me to hold back. - (laughing) I know 'cause this is so exciting, I know. Here, do you want to put some ice in your cup? - Yeah. Did you watch my video on seven things I find strange about the USA? - No. - Lots of ice, ice, ice in everything. Ice, ice, ice. All right, maybe you need to watch it. - Have some extra ice. - Okay. (chuckles) - And a little bit of refreshing lemon. - Okay, yes please! - So this is, this is one of my favorite ways to stay cool when the weather is warm is to have some-- - So Kate is squeezing the lemon. - I'm squeezing the lemon, and if this were very traditional we would actually have lemonade. - Yeah! - Mm-hmm. And children make money in the summer by having a lemonade stand, and selling little cups of lemonade. Today, we have sparkling water. - Yeah, from Trader Joes. - True. - And it says, raspberry lime flavor. So this is sparkling water. What is the most famous brand of sparkling water in the US? - Oh, good question. - Well think about a few years ago, there weren't many options, there was only one option. What was that option? There's a song about it that we both love. - Go ahead. - La Croix! - La Croix! - And, but did you know that I just saw a headline recently, saying that sales of La Croix have just come straight down? Because of all the cheap competitors now. - Yeah, now it's very popular, so, cheers! - Sparkling water with lemon. - Do you feel cooler and more refreshed? - Yeah. - My work is done. - So, that's the first thing in the heatwave, I guess? - Mm-hmm. - Cold water. - Cold water. - Stay hydrated, it's very important. - Now we're gonna imagine that you actually venture out of the house. - Okay, so we're stepping out the house now? - We're stepping out of the house, and there are two things that we apply to our skin before we go outside. - Yeah. - And I can show you what these are, but it's hard to tell from a distance. Can you guess what the two things are? - Me? - Uh huh. - Oh, I know what they are. - You know what they are. - So yeah (chuckles), but yet you put both of them on your skin? - Uh huh. - One protects you from the sun. And the other one protects you from bugs. - Bugs, mosquitoes, particularly. So I'm just gonna give you a little bit of this to apply. - Just a tiny bit. - Just a tiny bit I feel like I'm in duty free at the moment at the airport. (laughing) - It went everywhere! So I usually put this on my skin. This is sunblock. - I think we call it sunscreen, or suntan lotion. - Suntan lotion? Yeah we can call it that too. - Yeah. - Yeah, so we usually put on a lot of this or I do. - I don't. - Because my skin burns. - Yeah, I'm good at not getting burnt. - He gets tan. - I get tanned in the Uk, yeah to get tanned. - And now this is bug spray. - Yeah. Are you gonna put bug spray on me? - yes I am. - All right. Okay. - Here we go. Now, growing up we didn't really have bug spray. - No! - No. - You don't have as many mosquitoes. - No, I think I used to get bitten probably five times a summer in the UK. - Wow. - Here, it's crazy. Our house is a lot better, but our old property, you go outside, you'd have 10 mosquitoes just hovering around your legs, ready to strike. - And you are especially appealing to mosquitoes. - Yeah, I am. - They like me, they like to bite me, but now that I've been with you, they all just go to you. - Yeah. - He is the most delicious. Okay, so imagine, we're still going outside. Something else that we put on. Do you know what this is called? - Do you remember where we got those from too? - Yeah, I do. - So, tell them. - These are sun glasses. - Sun glasses. And you can do a couple things. First of all you can put on sunglasses. - Nice. - And then you can take them off again. And, oh! - Oh! (chuckling) - Avalera MyLodgeTax I don't know where these come from. - They're not sponsoring the video-- - No, sponsored by. Yeah so, sunglasses, shades as well. - Shades. - What, is there another word for them? - I think that's it, I just call them sunglasses. - Sunglasses and shades. I think shades are more, it's probably more common isn't it to say shades. - I still say sunglasses, but it is a little bit more cool to call them shades. - Yeah. - Did I tell you about the time when I got those sunglasses in Columbia? - No. - For next to nothing. Because a friend of mine, who I was traveling with at the time, he's so indecisive that they thought his indecision was him bargaining. So they said, "okay, thirty dollars for these sunglasses!" He's like "I don't know if I want them." They're like, "Twenty five!" "I just don't know if I want them or not." It just went down to five. - Oh, wow. - And then I said "I'll get some!" - I'll get some for five. So bargaining worked for you. - Yeah. - These were free! - Yeah. - Mhmm. - And we go through a lot of sunglasses, don't we? - Yeah, we do, they're really easy to break and lose. - Yeah. - But I like the nice ones that are polarized 'cause they really help protect your eyes, but we don't have that for every time. This one is a tricky one. This one is definitely a tricky one. This is for after. (chuckling) Did you see in the bucket? - Aloe? - Yes, but that was supposed to be the mystery. - I know, I keep saying this. - Okay, so this is a piece of a plant, and Jack gave away what plant it was. But this is an aloe vera plant, a piece of one. And after you go out in the sun, if you get burnt, or if you get burnt in any other way, aloe vera feels so good and see. - It works really well.
