“Boh” is an expression in Italy that I have picked up. It’s like saying I haven’t a clue about what you’re talking about and for me quite fitting perhaps but still I feel terrible that I have adopted this bad habit because it really is a meaningless expression kind of like “Eh” in Canada. But what can I say? I have started to talk with my hands and shrug my shoulders like the rest of Italy because I feel like it’s the only way people will understand me. And for the record, I don’t think I really used “Eh” all that much but perhaps I never noticed. I sure do notice it when I go back to Canada though.
But, off topic here for a moment…I have been without Internet at home which is why I have been really slack with the blog posts lately. I am currently at work and hooked into the wireless connection but to be honest my most creative writing moments usually happen when I am sipping tea in my pajama’s! Apparently I would be breaking the dress code here on that one so that’s why the lack of posts.
My work schedule has also doubled and I have been dealing with my first foray into the Italian Public school system. Yeah, I know, me teaching at a Public school! If you hear a big thud it was probably my old teachers back in Canada falling over with laughter.
I went to visit Mama yesterday and as usual there were dust bunnies the size of my cat in here room and 4 or 5 pizza boxes stacked up next to the garbage pail. I have cut my grocery bills in half and my apartment is spotless. Although I am still working on some heating issues I am happy as a clam to be living alone.
That’s all for now…I am hungry and need to eat lunch.
Here’s another great expression only in North America…”have a good one!”
