The Joke's on Us

Every year about this time my sister and I plan a weekend getaway . . . just the two of us.

This time we are going to Hilton Head Island. Our hotel is reserved, and we are full of plans that include dining, shopping, biking, sun-bathing, and talking into the night.

Here's what we didn't plan on: the entire Italian American Club of Augusta (which includes our parents) also on Hilton Head Island this weekend for a Bocce Tournament. I mean, what are the odds?

But that's okay, we'll be forewarned because they are, after all, a very large group of Italians. The noise level alone will let us know exactly where they are at any given moment.

Which gives my sister and me plenty of time to duck out of the way in completely the opposite direction!

Che ridere!!! Sei proprio sicura che siamo noi italiani a parlare ad alta voce? Lo ammetto, è proprio così. Care "blod e brunette" avete proprio due faccine...."birichine".
Divertitevi e chissà che non convinca Paola a fare altretto.
Ciao da Tizi la quasi "bianchette".
