An Italian Lesson

 

images-1.jpgThe first thing you should know is that I have never studied Italian, much as I’d like to. However, just from being in Italy over the years, I have become quite fluent in Menu Italian. Did you know that biscotti is plural? If you have the willpower to eat only one, you will crunch on a biscotto. But who can eat only one?

Have you ever tagged a wall? (Tsk tsk.) If you made only one mark, you created a graffito. Graffiti is when you (or Banksy) paint a large creation containing many letters and figures. If caught, you’d have to confess, “These graffiti were my creation. And that graffito over there also was mine.” Plural vs. singular.

Ciao!

    Have never eaten just one zepolla either.

    Log time no speak. Hope you and Handsome are well and safe from the fire activities.

    We’re thinking about you and all our Cali friends.

    Be well, Judi.
