I was just thinking .. Some months ago, I was sitting in the same uncomfortable airport chair I am sitting in right now, commenting that I was going to be out of the country during Memorial Day. This time, I'll be out of the country during Labor Day. I seem to be in Italy during the American holidays, and in America during the Italian holidays.
Such is life in the big city.
On a slighty related but-not-really note, someone please tell me this is a joke: Angry Italians to go on national pasta strike.
There is just way too much comedy in that.
Consequently, the strike-organisers are prepared for serious withdrawal symptoms. Emergency stands offering free bread and milk will be set up in all major Italian cities for those in need of carbohydrates.
Nahhhh .. really ? REALLY ?
