the one where we go to Naples

seriously. the crust will make you weep with joy.

beneath the city 

the first Italian woman I have seen that needed assistance navigating the cobblestones in stilettos. This leads me to believe she wasn't actually Italian.

do you count three legs? That's because a little boy was riding shotgun. Or playing monkey in the middle. Or  filming an infomercial for seatbelt arms and imaginary helmet.

I was the only person who was concerned about her train dragging on the dirty ground but Mike thought it would be weird if I ran over and picked it up. But you know what? I'm a good bridesmaid. And hers were obviously terrible. Or secretly hated her and wanted to make her look bad. Like those horrible frenemies on Say Yes to the Dress.

creepy creepies. You know these will come alive at night and kill you in your sleep.

should I just caption this one "No, I don't love my kid. Why do you ask?"

  2. Hi,
    We lived in Roma for 5 years many years ago. In November, 2015, are taking our 15 year old grandson back there to where his Mom was born. He is an avid soccer player. Can you tell me if/where there is a place/club where we might take him to join a pick-up game while we are there, or just meet some players. Also are there games/clubs we can go to and watch during late November?
    We'd love to meet you, and any soccer information you can give us would be much appreciated.
    Grazie! Jill Cammarata, email:
