Can we use spread instead of apply
- Sam is applying cream on baby's skin
- Sam is spreading some cream on baby's skin
It was desperate housewives. In that scene the man wanted to kiss the woman (Marcia Cross) who was teaching him how to use his gun. The man asked if she used perfume and she said ' no, I just made my cream.' it seemed like she wasn't interested in him and just wanted to say something."I make my cream" would mean that you separated the cream from the milk by hand (if speaking about cream from milk), or that you actually created the lotion or cream yourself at home (if speaking about hand or face cream.)
I'm curious what the name of this series is that had such a line in it. Is it set in the old West?
Yes. It's possible that I have heard it wrong, I mean maybe I didn't catch the whole sentence. Native speakers of any language usually speak fast or they may eat some words( I don't know if ' eating word' is correct form to say in English) so maybe I got it wrong.I would think she meant "I have just put my make up on."
