  1. Can you hear me roaring and splitting my sides all over again, Ant. C???!

    Clearly, you 'non flocci faccio' - do not give a straw - about my ribs.

    You'll be telling Geiger and Sporran - those quirky black cats - about this, won't you? Oh, AND Estorbo - esp. Estorbo! He would have plenty to contribute to this conversation!

    He he. You are funny. And I reeeaaally needed some lightness this morning - muchas gracias mi amigo,
    Klara ; )

  2. Very nice. You have one thick accent there. :)

  3. Now thatsa funny! (Thanks to Claire for prompting that.) ;)

  4. I had to read it out loud and it made me laugh even harder. Loved it.

  5. At first I thought you wrote "Gut" a tomato and onion. Probably unnecessary, I suppose. But definitely EASIER than gutting a fish or deer.

  6. Someone asked me today if I knew what Sarcopenia is. I thought it was a kind of pasta. [shrug]

  7. Mama Mia! (I hated that movie but this made me laugh.)

  8. Ah Nonna wouda be proud. Bene, Bene.
