All afternoon I have been struggling to communicate in Italian with Roberto and Giuseppe, who have begun to resemble the two male characters in my Italian for Beginners, the ones who are always shopping or inquiring about the times of trains, and now I can hardly speak or write English.

Now that is awesome how he trusts the reader to understand without having to have it broke down in words of one syllable! Great understatement and humor
