What would I do for a Klondike bar? I would totally knit one blanket for a Klondike bar. Ha, but that’s only if I know how to knit. Since I don’t know how to knit, I would just get a knitted blanket for a Klondike bar. Or I would actually eat locusts for a Klondike bar. Nah, I would not actually eat locusts for a Klondike bar. I don’t have the appetite and the strength to eat locusts for now. So I wouldn’t eat them. But if you want to eat locusts for a Klondike bar, I would be your biggest cheerleader ever. Woo!

Now, what would you do for a Klondike bar? Would you learn different ways of saying “thank you” in Russian? I mean learning this is as adventurous as knitting a blanket or eating locusts, that's for sure. So would you? Unfortunately, I am not taking no for an answer so that means you’re going to learn how to say “thank you” in Russian. But don’t worry, I will be learning these thank you phrases with you.
