I know I’m doing something right when one of the search terms that leads people to my blog is “What does popravilas mean in Russian?” Well, Googler, I’m assuming you’re American and your mother-in-law said this to you. It means you’ve gained weight. But it literally kind of means you’ve straightened out. Sideways.
I know. Russian women are the worst.
I would never say that anyone popravilas. Except Oprah.
